Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE)
SAVE was one of the nation’s first organizations dedicated to the prevention of suicide. Our work is based on the foundation and belief that suicide is preventable and everyone has a role to play in preventing suicide.
Through raising public awareness, educating communities, and equipping every person with the right tools, we know we can SAVE lives. For 30 years with more than 20 Charters, SAVE has been the leading national organization working to prevent suicide through public awareness, education and as a resource for suicide survivors.
SAVE runners commit to fundraising a minimum amount prior to race weekend, as outlined below:
- Grandma’s Marathon — $500
- Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon — $500
- William A. Irvin 5K — n/a
The fundraising goal must be reached before the runner may register for the race. If the minimum fundraising amount is not met, the remaining balance will be charged to the runner.
