$910 towards $1,800

September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness month. Join me this year by supporting my "Miles with Mik" campaign for the Lost&Found Organization.

This year, I am training for a virtual half marathon that will take place in November. During my training, I will run 300 miles (give or take a tempo run here and there). My furry companion, Hector, will join me during my training as he is an avid runner and very passionate about mental health. We are asking for $1/"leg of our race."

  • Math is hard sometimes, so to be clear, I have 2 legs and Hector has 4 (totally 6 legs running 300 miles).

Our goal is to raise $1,800 during the months of September and October (as I cannot run 300 miles in 30 days, Hector probably could). Along my journey, I will further the conversation about suicide and the importance of raising awareness.

Please join me in making a difference for millions of individuals who are impacted by suicide each day. My family has experienced firsthand the effects of suicide and I hope to raise funds and awareness surrounding suicide and mental health. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

If you are unable to make a financial contribution, please consider sharing my page with others who might be interested. I will share updates on my fundraising efforts and most importantly, pictures of Hector, on my social media handles listed below.
