19th Annual Samaritans 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention: Where Does The Money Go?


Samaritans is a nonprofit agency dedicated to reducing the risk of suicide, which is the second leading cause of death for Massachusetts youth and the nation’s tenth leading cause of death for all ages.

All proceeds help fund Samaritans’ life saving services, including our 24/7 Helplines, Community Education and Outreach, and Grief Support Services for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. These vital services are available locally to the families, friends and neighbors, free of charge. Samaritans answers calls from Greater Boston, MetroWest, the State Wide toll free number, and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
