Welcome to My Personal Page
Four years ago when I ran my first and only 5K, something I never in a MILLION years though that I would EVER do, I ran in honor of my mother, Claudine Saks, who died by suicide 32 years ago at age 55. Four years ago, my best friend and beloved Craig Johnson had not yet done the same. It is now time to also honor his life.
With the recent suicide deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, the memories of my mother and Craig become faster and harder than ever before. Just yesterday, I read of a 9-yr old boy who after coming out as gay, and suffering at the ridicule of his peers, went home and took his own life. By running for The Samaritans, I am not only honoring their memories but also doing whatever I possibly can to raise awareness for this devastating and relentless lack of hope.
I'm asking you to help me in this endeavor by donating WHATEVER you can, no matter how big or how small.
