THIS IS MY STORY



I have battled Bipolar Disorder all of my life. 

Following a formal diagnosis in my mid- twenties I tried everything to gain control of my disorder. Sometimes I succeeded, other times I wasn’t so lucky.
 Unfortunately, like many others who live with mental illness, I lost people in my life who didn’t understand. There were many times I felt alien, misunderstood, ignored, and alone.
Let’s face it; this topic does not come up without stigma. It’s okay to not understand. But when people are struggling alone it decreases their chances of survival.

I am a suicide attempt survivor

In 2010 I decided I need to take a different approach to living with, embracing, and surviving my disorder.

 I laced up a pair of sneakers and went for a run
Since then I’ve run countless running races everything from 5ks to half marathons, obstacle runs, and triathlons. I push myself physically which pushes me mentally and satisfies me emotionally.

The Samaritans’ mission is to reduce the incidence of suicide by alleviating despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings among individuals in our community, 24 hours a day; to educate the public about suicide prevention; and to reduce the stigma associated with suicide.

I would like to take my once very dark experiences and make good use of these scars; to help others find themselves, find HOPE, and live a life they can enjoy. Therefore I will run 26.2 miles for all of us who have felt that darkness, that despair, and that alone. 

I want to be part of bringing the Samaritans one step closer to helping another person by putting one foot in front of the other.

I survived, others deserve that chance as well. Please join me in my mission. 

Help save a life by following my journey and participating in fundraising events to support my cause.

All funds raised will go directly to the SamaritansHope.Org.
