Each ride-day the Light the Trail team will #Ride4 a victim of suicide to honor and celebrate their life, and to further healthy conversation about this important topic.

Tell us about them…
He was a a baseball player I knew in High School. He was always making people laugh, he always had a smile on his face. We lost him our freshman year. I didn’t know him very well in life, but I felt like I should have been able to see the signs.
How has your perspective of depression and suicide shifted over time?
I had to realize that each person suffers differently, that he suffered in different ways than I did then and do now. It took me time to figure out hat I’m not going to be able to notice and tell if someone’s hurting, but I’m learning how to be someone that people can come to for advice, love and help.
A small special way we can celebrate them on the road?
Someone please toss a baseball, if possible.
