Welcome to our team fundraising page for Samaritans 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention!
I hope you will support us in raising funds for Samaritans and their suicide prevention work.
We are walking in memory of Frank Cetrullo, our dad, husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend. Like so many others, he suffered in silence and showed no warning signs. In fact, the night before his suicide he came home with a pair of new running sneakers. Frank was our go-to guy. His humor was infectious, and he was just as smart as he was funny. Our grief is still tremendous, and not a day goes by we dont feel the loss of him. Samartians have been an amazing resource for our family during the most trying of times. We are walking for him and this great organization.
