25 athletes came together to support the cause of suicide awareness.
The event required 3-4 hours of planning and execution, during which participants donned special uniforms.
They took the opportunity to share suicide statistics with the audience both before the game and at halftime.
The event also featured a 50/50 raffle that raised $117, with half of the proceeds going to SAVE, an organization dedicated to suicide prevention and awareness.
The event emphasized the importance of addressing suicide openly and regularly in the school and community, with the goal of normalizing discussions about mental health, seeking help when needed, and checking on the well-being of others, even those who may not appear to be struggling. It highlighted the commitment of these athletes to a crucial cause that affects countless lives.
