Alive & Running is an uplifting, life-affirming event that remembers loved ones lost to suicide while raising funds and awareness for the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center.
The first in the nation, the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center is a national and world leader in training, research and services for people who have thought about, attempted or lost someone to suicide.
The Center has a 24/7 English/Spanish Crisis Line (1-800-273-TALK) that takes calls from around the United States and is the back-up for crisis centers throughout California, including Teen Line! It is also one of only three in the U.S. that answers calls on the National Disaster Distress Helpline.
On Sunday, September 24, 2017, our Teen Line Listeners, Resource Assistants, and Teen Line Board Member, Jane McCord attended the event to walk/run, cheer on the participants and support Didi Hirsch. We are grateful the enormous support we receive from Didi Hirsch everyday and are thankful that we were able to support their incredible event.
