WE DID IT!!! Thank you to each and every one of you for participating in the Tommy Fuss Team’s tenth Overnight Walk. I hope you all made it home safely, have eased your sore muscles, and have caught up on some sleep. I hope it was a meaningful night for each of you and I hope you found strength and comfort knowing that what we are doing will help those who are suffering from a disease we know so little about and will help to save precious lives.
Together — as walkers and crew — we were successful in raising awareness, supporting survivors and raise money for the important work of the AFSP. Although I do not have our final team fundraising numbers, we have proudly raised over $45,000.00 this year. Thank you for all your fundraising efforts and your own personal donations.
Lastly, thank you for remembering and honoring Tommy in this special way — you are truly a wonderful Team. Thank you for putting up with all of my emails… and for always responding promptly to my numerous requests! Thank you to Joe for all the behind the scenes artwork and website design, and for always gathering us for our annual team picture. And above all, thank you to RoseMary and Dan for hosting our annual team luncheon and being our backbone and support. Their courage, strength and love are truly the “wind beneath our wings” as we journey together — one step at a time — to bring issues of mental health and suicide Out of the Darkness.
With sincerest regards and thanks, Valerie
