What do you run for?

Did you know that Nationwide suicide is now the
2nd leading cause of death for young people 10-24. 
In the state of South Carolina it's 3rd.
The Jonathan Foundation is on a mission to touch the

As we go into 2021, we will be engaging in #Project2025, a nation-wide effort led by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,
a campaign to reduce the rate of suicides by 20 percent by 2025.
