Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my fundraising page for Samaritans 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention!
I hope you will support me in raising funds for Samaritans and their suicide prevention work.
In March of 2019 my stepbrother Timothy Wolfe took his own life. Getting that phone call was the worst thing that has ever happened to me. My world exploded and collapsed in on itself and there was nothing I could do. I repeat the last conversation I had with him, did I say goodbye? Did I hug him? I don't remember. It never crossed my mind that it would be the last time I spoke to him.
A week after his funeral I found myself trying to make sense of what my world was now without him. A friend reached out to me, and told me about this organization and the work they do. I had donated before but didn't give it much more thought than that. But there I was reaching out for a lifeline and finding one, so I signed up that day to walk in September.
Some days are easier than others, some days it's near impossible to not see him in every little thing. A song, a dragonfly, a moment of silence - I hear his laugh. Nothing I do will ever bring him back, but if this helps someone else it's worth it. If you know someone who is struggling, reachout to them. Don't wait for them to ask for help, be the friend that listens, be the friend that texts first, be the friend that is around. I can't change my last conversation with him but I can make every conversation I have going forward better. I can make a difference somewhere with someone. I can try at least.
