The 16th Annual “Run/Walk For Someone Else’s Life” Samaritans 5K and Family Fun Festival!

5k-Bib_2014It’s a Great Day to Be Alive!

The 16th Annual Samaritans “Run/Walk for Someone Else’s Life” 5K and Family Fun Festival will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014 in Artesani Park in Brighton, MA. Bib pick up and day-of registration will begin at 8AM, and the run will begin at 10AM, shortly followed by the walk. Last year, over 3,000 joined us to raise awareness for Samaritans and celebrate life. Thanks to everyone who participated, over $350,000 was generated for suicide prevention. This year, we have raised our goal to $400,000 towards our life-saving services. We hope you will join us as an individual or a member of a team, as a runner, walker, volunteer, or virtual participant! By doing so, you will be helping reduce incidences of suicide, educate the public about suicide prevention, and reduce the stigma associated with suicide.
