September is National Suicide Awareness and Prevention month across the United States. In support of this, DL MountainFest will be donating a portion of race proceeds to the local chapters of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention as its official charity partner. When you register, you can also make an additional donation to this great organization!
Suicide is a problem that touches the lives of many Americans. Many of us may know someone, such as a friend, family member, or coworker who has attempted or died by suicide. Over the past two decades, suicide rates have steadily risen in the United States. Suicide is currently ranked 10th for cause of death among all ages.
In December of 2020, our organization lost a great friend, Brad Bosch, to suicide. Not only was Brad an avid runner and cyclist, he was an amazingly giving person. He was a great father, great son, and great friend! We remember Brad every day and we remember him and anyone else who has lost someone to suicide during DL MountainFest!
DL MountainFest is a reminder that we should all celebrate living your best life! We hope you’ll join us for the fun and help us make a difference at the same time!
