Suicide is a silent epidemic. People rarely talk about it. And because of that, people do not seek or receive the help they need. While suicide does not get the media attention of mass shootings, bombings or drug overdoses, you’ll see in the enclosed materials that suicide is the cause of 45,000 deaths each year in the United States. And for every one death, 25 people make an attempt. EVERY ONE of these deaths and suicide attempts was preventable with proper treatment.

By attending KJ's 5k, you can make a difference!  Join us on October 6th, 2018 to support suicide prevention and education in Summit County, and help take care of homeless animals. Proceeds benefit Portage Path bEhavioral health, Summit County Animal Control, and RubberCity Rescue.
