SAVE - Suicide Awareness Voices of Education
I am setting up this private funding website in memory of my Uncle Matt, to raise money to donate to the Suicide Awareness Voices of Education foundation (SAVE).

In order to create awareness and raise as much money as possible, I have decided to dedicate every one of my runs in the FLORIDA STORM SERIES CHALLENGE to my Uncle Matt. Matt passed before his 24th birthday and this is something that touches me greatly as I am growing older and am now in the same stage of life as when he passed. He was a son, a grandson, a brother, an uncle, and more than anything a friend. I therefore, would also like to specially dedicate the MIAMI Marathon on February 2, 2014 to him; this will be my first marathon and the only marathon I will do out of all 5 races of the challenge.

MY GOAL : I would like to raise 100$ for every mile I run (78.6 miles), a total of $7,860.
The last race is MARCH 16th, 2014 and would like to raise all of the money by then! Please help me make this possible!

WHAT IS THE FLORIDA STORM SERIES CHALLENGE?

The FULL STORM SERIES CHALLENGE is a total of 5 races:

Race 1 - November 10th, 2013 -- Allstate Life Insurance Fort Lauderdale 13.1 Marathon & Relay. - Fort Lauderdale

Race 2 - December 8th, 2013 -- Palm Beaches Marathon & Run Fest presented by Publix - West Palm Beach

Race 3 - February 2, 2014 --ING Miami Marathon & Half Marathon

Race 4 - March 2nd, 2014 -- Allstate Life Insurance Miami Beach 13.1 Marathon - Miami Beach

Race 5 - March 16th, 2014 --First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon & Relay - Sarasota

WHAT IS SAVE ?

SAVE
believes that suicide is preventable and that suicide prevention works. In order to accomplish their mission and goals, they use the public health model along with media campaigns and education to raise awareness of suicide. They use an educational approach to dispel the myths about suicide, and to let others know about the realities surrounding what the former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher called a "public health crisis." Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States.
