Hello Family and Friends,
Welcome to the Team KWS fundraising homepage for the Samaritans 5K! I have been walking this 5K in memory of my talented and cherished nephew Kyle since 2006. Although I will not officially be walking this year, I will be the event Chair. So, if you come to the event, we will still have a great day together, all while raising funds and awareness for Samaritans, a suicide prevention organization serving Greater Boston and Metrowest. When you consider the fact that suicide is now the second leading cause of death amongst young people ages 15-24, you begin to grasp the magnitude of its prevalence in our society and see how important it is for us to make a difference.
This year's event is happening on Saturday, September 23rd at Artesani Park in Brighton at 10 a.m. (Note that we are reverting back to the original start time!) We would love for you to support our team by making a donation or by joining our team at the event. Click "Donate Now" to make a donation and help us reach our fundraising goal, or click "Join This Team" to register for the event as a member of our team. We hope to see you at this amazing event!
Thank you so much!
