On October 1st, Lauren Jackson organized a team in James’ memory for the Toledo Out of the Darkness walk. Lauren is a member of our JPO Foundation committee and one of James’ closest friends. Lauren, along with James’ friends and family raised awareness for suicide and suicide prevention. Events like these, bring light to the topic and makes it easier for survivors to talk about their loved one. Together, their team raised almost $2,000! These donations will go towards the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide. We are so lucky to have this organization researching, educating, bringing survivors of suicide loss together, and honoring our loved ones lost.
