Race to Save Lives - November
was Saturday, November 5, 2016
benefiting the Suicide Prevention Center at United Health Services
The idea for a community event to raise awareness about suicide was started by the Krueger family to honor the life of Elaine Krueger. The original Stayin' Afloat event in downtown South Bend became what is now Race to Save Lives.
All proceeds support the Suicide Prevention Center at United Health Services and its programs to prevent suicide in our community and the surrounding areas.
Race to Save Lives is a 5k & 10k chip timed on certified courses in near-by Mishawaka at the Saint Joseph Health System. Medals are awarded three deep in each age group with trophies for the top male and female in both the 5k & 10k. A 3K Walk for Hope for those non-runners.
Please like us on our Facebook page to stay informed on the 2017 walks and races supporting the Sucide Prevention Center.
