The 7th Annual Run for Life!5K benefiting the LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team of Tarrant County was held on Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at 8am at Trinity Park. Blue skies, food trucks and live music made for a beautiful day. We were honored to have Honorary Chairs, Scott and Pam Millican, speak at the event and acknowledge those lives we have lost to suicide.
We are both honored and humbled that you would choose us to serve in this role. We look forward to shining a light on mental illness as it is very important to both of us, and working with MHA and LOSS Team gives us an outlet to do just that. – Scott and Pam Millican
Mental Health America of Greater Tarrant County is committed to leading the community in suicide outreach, education, and prevention. A recent report from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office indicates that the number of suicides in Tarrant County is approximately 200 per year. And for every suicide, an estimated 60 people are intimately affected.
Thank you for partnering with MHA and the LOSS Team. You have been instrumental in implementing new and much needed programs within our community, including the LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team of Tarrant County, a group of volunteers immediately assisting people who lost a loved one by suicide and providing support and resources for further coping. Suicide statistics are rising in our country and throughout Tarrant County, and your support is very much appreciated!
Thank you to our 2017 7th Annual Run for Life Sponsors!
