Laura's story

Laura talks about why she fundraises to support our work after losing her sister-in-law to suicide. 

Situations like Laura’s highlight the wider impact of a death by suicide. For every person who dies by suicide, it is estimated that 135 more are affected. 

Running to raise funds is something that many of our supporters do. Like Laura says, the experience of a suicide in the family is very sad and we are honoured that she and many others like her are choosing to help us raise awareness and save more lives from suicide in the future. 

More support and information about the topics in Laura’s story is available below.
