(Day 157: 3,140.37 Total Miles) Meeker Running

This being the first day of National Suicide Prevention Week, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has asked us to share what motivates us to prevent suicide and how we are involved. After losing both my mother and then six months late my best friend, I felt compelled to do what I could to make a difference. The pain of losing loved ones to suicide was so overwhelming, I wanted to put my efforts into making It so others wouldn't have to suffer a similar loss. That alone is enough motivation to keep me going for the rest of my life.

PHIL'S MISSION

IS TO STOP AND MEET WITH LOCAL PEOPLE FROM EACH CITY TO TALK WITH THEM AND JUST TELL  HIS STORY ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCES AND TRY TO HELP OTHERS TO KNOW THAT HIS MISSION TO HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS HE CAN WITH THIS RUN ... HIS HOPE IS TO MOTIVATE OTHERS TO SPEAK LOCALLY AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO BE THAT LENDING EAR OR THAT SAY TO THAT PERSON OR FAMILY WHO HAS A FAMILY MEMBER STRUGGLING THAT YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
