Running 20km to take action for 113 Suicide Prevention

Suicide is the leading cause of death among people under 30 in the Netherlands. With donations towards the cause, research and projects can be supported in lowering this number as well as raising awareness of the issue.

I will be running 5km each week of November 2023. In total that will be 20km! The 4 week time period gives me time to raise awareness on the cause, as well as spread the word about my goal and collect as many donations as possible!

Final 5k complete .. End of the 20k!

Late last week I completed the 20k I set out to run to raise money for 113.  The past 4 (and a bit) weeks of organizing this and doing every run have been so rewarding, spreading the word on 113's work and getting to have some really important conversations with people curious about my running has really shown me how much a project like this was needed!  I not only ran for myself this month, but for every friend, sibling, parent, teacher, and human being affected by suicide. Being able to run, make a few posters and end up with so many kind donations was so unexpected, I cannot thank anyone who donated enough :).  Although my action plan with 113 is over, the work does not end here and suicide prevention is still a constant and ongoing issue. Please consider continuing to follow 113 Zelfmoord Preventie and their work, as well as any other mental health charity/organization helping to make a difference. If you have any questions or want suggestions on organizations to support, feel free to reach out!  Thank you truly from the bottom of my heart, again, to anyone who showed their support in any way for the cause <3 Take care and stay warm!!  Love from, Erin 🐌

Stichting 113 Zelfmoordpreventie is de nationale organisatie voor preventie van suïcide. Onze missie is een land waarin niemand eenzaam en radeloos sterft door zelfmoord. Wij zijn ervan overtuigd dat er jaarlijks honderden suïcides meer kunnen worden voorkómen wanneer zelfmoord beter bespreekbaar is en de zorg innovatiever en menselijker wordt georganiseerd.
