For this event, we realize that your efforts to participate are just a small part of what we can accomplish with a concerted effort by everyone involved. We need help from your team to collect donations to bring to this event. We feel that if every team were to bring $100 of additional donations to the event (in addition to what we will be donating through the event), that we begin to generate an event that will donate significant funds to NAMI-KC and their educational efforts.
As part of the Walking Beside movement, we see this event as an opportunity to partner with our teams and players to develop an understanding in those that we are teaching and coaching. An understanding of community and service to others in an effort to grow within ourselves. These connections and bonds are at the root of combating Teen Suicide.
One of the greatest impacts we can make is to fund and support educational programs and outreach efforts. We encourage and challenge you as a team to help find a way to generate a donation on your behalf to NAMI and the efforts to combat Teen Suicide.
