Wyatt Banks Memorial

Donation protected
Wyatt Banks was a freshman at UGA and one of our brother’s in The Kappa Sigma Beta Lambda Chapter. He passed away on Wednesday night, February 21st, 2024. We want to preserve his memory and beloved soul with a fundraiser to support his family in this hard time, as well as bring important attention to suicidal awareness.During his time here, Wyatt spread nothing but positivity and laughter, with an infectious smile and a laugh that anyone in the room could recognize. Along with his constant spread of positivity, Wyatt diligently excelled in academics, as a member of Morehead Honors College, and was always eager to help his friends in school whenever they needed it. If you were seeking someone to talk to, he was always there with open arms no matter what. If you were looking to go out and have a good time, you knew who to ask. For anything you needed, Wyatt was that guy. With all these redeeming qualities of Wyatt, you would think there would be no problems with him at all, and that's the issue. Hiding many of his deepest emotions from his friends, family, and brothers, Wyatt was alone in his struggles and sadly resorted to the most desperate solution. Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise awareness towards mental health/suicide, hoping to prevent situations like this for anyone else struggling. No matter who you are, your life matters, and know that there are people who want to help. If you are ever struggling, feel alone, or just need someone to talk to, always remember the suicide hotline is 3 dials away - 988 on your phone. Our only desire is to spread the word that it is a necessity to reach out, find help, and talk to people when you are in a situation of need, no matter how big or small. We plan on presenting this money to his family, providing support for a funeral, donations to mental health groups, establishing a scholarship in Wyatt’s name, or any other idea they have to best memorialize their son. Thank you for supporting our cause, please keep Wyatt and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
