Year after year we are faced with the harrowing reality of suicide across our country.
Over a million Americans attempt to end their life annually. Yet still there exists a pervasive stigma surrounding the topic of depression, an issue that faces all of the nation’s diverse demographics.
Since their founding in 2014 The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation has fought to eradicate suicide by funding depression research, creating awareness through education, and battling the stifling stigma. In the Fall of 2017 the Foundation took that mission on the road.
We Lighted the Trail for those struggling in darkness by cycling coast to coast, retracing the route of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Along the way we educated communities about depression and suicide awareness, and encouraged those we meet to share their experiences facing the disorder. We also raised over 1 million dollars to aid the Foundation’s efforts to eradicate suicide.
