I am dedicating my spring lacrosse season to the Jason Foundation. This past year, my sibling lost his best friend to suicide, and many of my close friends grew up with him. Upon hearing this news, I was compelled to try and make a change and help people who go through these mental challenges.
The Jason Foundation focuses on the prevention of the “Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide. They offer educational and awareness programs for young people, educators, and parents with tools and resources to help and identify these situations.
I have created a GoFundMe and 100% of all donations will go to the Jason Foundation. Look for information on upcoming fundraisers soon too.
Thank you for the support. It means so much to many people around the world and me!!
