Support TCU & Run for Life

The Suicide Awareness Coalition of Tarrant County is proud to announce the Fifth Annual 5K Run for Life Race! benefiting the LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team at Heart of the Ranch on Saturday, September 12th, 2015 and we need your help to raise awareness!

The Suicide Awareness Coalition of Tarrant County (formerly Suicide Prevention Coalition of Tarrant County), an initiative of Mental Health America of Greater Tarrant County is committed to leading the community in suicide awareness, outreach, and education. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students. And for every suicide, more than six people are left to grieve for their loved ones.

Please join team (TCU) at the Fifth Annual 5K Run for Life! By joining the race, you will lend a hand in implementing much needed programs within our community, including the Loss Team. This team is comprised of volunteers who offer immediate support to people who have lost a loved one to suicide and who also provide links to resources for further coping. Because suicide statistics are rising in our country and throughout Tarrant County, please bring your wonderful horned frog spirit to our TCU team. Together, we can make Tarrant County a happier and healthier community.
