Every fifteen minutes someone commits suicide. Within a three-month period, the Lincoln Community suffered the loss of three young men.There’s been a rippling affect ever since.
Many of our youth have reached out to community members telling of their suicidal thoughts and since then we’ve lost more to suicide. We don’t have enough resources in Lincoln. It’s time to take action. WE, the parents and community, along with the support of the Lincoln Rotary Foundation, created the first annual 5k MUD-RUN-4-LIFE event, that was held last year. Over 900 individuals participated in the event with over 700 runners! Register now for our June 22nd, 2013 Mud Run! Our mission is to raise funds to help educate, provide resources and do what we can to prevent suicide in our community.
Thanks to your generous donations in 2012, we’ve kept our commitment and invested in our Lincoln community to help our youth. Some programs we’ve donated to have been Character Combine for Lincoln High School, a year-long character building program beginning for the 2013–2014 school year. Other programs we’ve donated to include Point Break as well as Soroptimists for teen girls.
