I am the JV softball coach at Williamsville North and every May we have a JV Play Day. It is an event where 8 teams participate and all play two games. We have this event to honor Amanda Stockman who was a 10th grade student who died by suicide in September of 2015.
We have run our play day for the last three years. All proceeds from this event go to various organizations that support Suicide Awareness.
We took 3,000.00 of our profits from the play day and donated them to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
We also donated 2,000.00 to Crisis Services in Western New York. The remainder was donated to a scholarship fund that has been set up in Amanda’s honor.
The walk was for all families that have lost someone to suicide. There were probably 3,000 people there this Saturday including our softball and field hockey team.
Our softball program has participated in the walk the last four years.
