Goal $3,000.00

$1,925.00Raised

Thank you for visiting my page! For the second go-round, I will be running the TCS New York City Marathon to raise money for The Ganely Foundation this fall!

As suicide rates continue to raise in the United States, it is important now more than ever to support these orginatizations and help them in their mission. 

In the U.S… 

  • 10 years ago suicide was the 11th leading cause of death. Today it is the 10th in the U.S for the general population. 
  • We lose approximately 132 people per day to suicide. Oftentimes deaths by suicide are underreported. 
  • The cost of suicide in the U.S. is $69 Billion.
  • The rate of suicide in those ages 10-14 continues to escalate as do rates across ALL other demographics in the U.S.
  • The 2nd leading cause of death for those ages 10-34 is suicide. 

 

In the past 10 years…

  • In 10 years GF has served over 45,000 students, 15,000 educators, 8,500 parents, and 3,400 community members.
  • 1,400 Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) and Student Resource Officers (SRO). These are the appointed police officers at schools or first responders to scenes involving mental health issues.
  • 600 medical professionals and interns in Emergency Room Departments were trained. 
  • Provides year round consultation for schools regarding school suicide prevention and post-vention services. 
  • Built and supports the James R. Ganley School in Juarez, Mexico.
  • Responded to tragedies like Marjory Stonemason Douglas school shooting and local suicides by providing postvention along with referrals for bereavement and individual counseling. 
  • We’ve lost count of our success stories (we are at over 100 were we think definitely lives were saved by intervention and proper referral) and since most involve minors we do not always hear back due to privacy laws.

Anything you can offer helps and thanks again for stopping by!
