The Tommy Fuss Team walked through rain and high wind in Boston this weekend celebrating nine years of active participation in the AFSP’s Overnight fundraising walk. A new national movement has grown alongside these annual walks challenging the status quo, bringing an issue long left in the dark into a new, more hopeful dawn. This is not simply metaphor, it is reality.
We raised over $75,000.00, but equally important is that figure came from nearly 600 donations which translates into hundreds of conversations raising awareness of suicide, the underlying causes and the research to prevent it.
In Boston we were 35 members strong with a wonderful, though soggy, support crew of 10 and 10 walkers generously sponsored by the Boston-based Loomis-Sayles company. Maybe that speaks to our home-town advantage this year, but we were overwhelmed by this gathering of love and support for our cause. Acknowledgement and thank you’s are not nearly enough to express our deep joy and appreciation.
Below you’ll find some highlights from the 2015 Overnight. These help illustrate just another facet of Boston Strong!
