You’re invited to walk the boardwalk in Spring Lake to help save lives, in memory of Tim Schenke of Spring Lake Heights and others in the Manasquan High School area who lost their lives to suicide.

We recently had Lisa Schenke on our show to talk about her rise from grief after the death of her son. Lisa is participating in the 3rd annual AFSPJersey Shore Walk to bring together family, friends, colleagues, and supporters to raise awareness and help prevent suicide.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) says that suicide claims more than 38,000 lives each year in the U.S. alone, with someone dying by suicide every 13.7 minutes. A suicide attempt is made every minute of every day, resulting in nearly one million attempts made annually.

When you walk in one of the AFSP’s Out of the Darkness Walks, you join efforts with thousands of people nationwide to raise money for vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives. The walks raise awareness about depression and suicide, and provide comfort and assistant to those who have lost someone to suicide.

You can walk with Lisa or for those you have lost on Saturday, September 21st, 2013, at 8:30 am on the boardwalk in Spring Lake starting at Brown Avenue. Or you can donate to a walker from Team Timfinite by clicking here.

For more about Lisa Schenke’s journey to healing after the loss of her son, or to read her new book, click here.

All donations are 100% tax deductible and will help the work of AFSP.
