Want To Win a Brand New Pool?

One winner will be announced during the 2018 Runway 2 Life fashion show in October at Main Street Station. YOU could win a brand new in-ground pool for you or a direct family member! Raffle tickets are $50 and proceeds will be donated. You do not have to attend the event to win, and you do not need to be present for the announcement, although it would be amazing to see you there!
“I was inspired to put this show on because of my experience seeing the people around me disappear because of their struggles with mental illnesses and depression. Instead, we want to create hope, awareness, encouragement, and education to help you live the life you want to live.”

Alicia Amsler • Director – Runway 2 Life

If you or someone you know is struggling, you are not alone.

Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255

There are many supports, services and treatment options that may help. A change in behavior or mood may be the early warning signs of a mental health condition and should never be ignored. There are many different types of mental illness, and it isn’t easy to simplify the range of challenges people face.


Here are some things to consider when reaching out:

• If it’s an emergency in which you or someone you know is suicidal, you should immediately call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room.

• If you can wait a few days, make an appointment with your primary healthcare provider or pediatrician if you think your condition is mild to moderate.

• If your symptoms are moderate to severe, make an appointment with a specialized doctor such as a psychiatrist. You may need to contact your community mental health center or primary health care provider for a referral.

• If you or your child is in school or at college, contact the school and ask about their support services.

• Seek out support groups in your community and educate yourself about your symptoms and diagnosis. Social support and knowledge can be valuable tools for coping.

Non-profits often deal with large challenges that are, sometimes, seemingly impossible. Because of you, together as a community, we have made a real difference in the lives of the people we serve. I can’t wait to meet you at the 2018 Runway 2 Life event. Thank you for being a part of our mission.

Every dollar counts. Make a donation today. You might not be a doctor, but you can help the search for helpful solutions to mental illness by donating to Runway 2 Life. You might not be able to take time off work to save animals soaked in oil from the Gulf oil spill, but you can help support someone else who is able to do so. Whatever the cause, by donating to a nonprofit organization, you are directly helping to remedy the problem at hand.
