Goal $3,000.00

$3,000.00Raised

I’m running the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon to raise money and support for the Ganley Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that educates communities about depression and the challenges and stigmas that prevent proper intervention and treatment.

This is my first marathon and I’m proud to support this worthy cause. I know firsthand the pain and trauma that depression can inflict on families. My sister Sabrina Jones died in May 2017 when she committed suicide at the age of 39.

Jim and Ann Ganley founded this organization more than 15 years ago after their son Jimmy Ganley died at 22 due to undiagnosed depression. They also started the Crusade for Awareness to promote mental health by educating youth and their parents about the signs of depression. The Ganley Foundation believes that through education, young people will be able to recognize the signs of depression in themselves and their peers.

All of the proceeds raised by me and at least nine other runners will help fund the organization in various ways, including:

  • Student Presentations - Presentations are provided locally and nationally via strong relationships with county private and public elementary, middle, and high schools. Colleges also include the University of Miami, Nova Southeastern University, Barry University, Florida Memorial University, and Florida International University.
     
  • Professional Trainings - “Gatekeeper" workshops are provided for teachers, first responders including police officers, and staff members. This allows those professionals working with youth to identify important warning signs and make proper and proactive referrals.
     
  • Philanthropic Efforts - Including support of the James R. Ganley School, founded in one of the most violent cities, in the Americas Juarez, Mexico.
     
  • Conferences and Symposiums - Partnerships with Baptist Health, ICABA and United Way allow for widespread community education and bullying symposiums across Broward and Miami-Dade County. 

Thank you for your support in this valuable cause. The Ganley foundation looks forward to making more of these success stories possible. Together more lives can be saved!
