Run for Hope Report

Updated: Dec 25, 2018

The Berrien County Suicide Prevention Coalition recently received a check for the funds raised by the September 8 Run for Hope. The check for $2,330.17 was presented to the Coalition by Marianne Groth of SWMI RACERS at our December meeting. Included in the picture are Ric Compton (CEO of Riverwood), Trent Watford (Former Coalition Chairperson), and Beth Helm (Coalition Vice Chairperson).


We plan to use the funds for the creation, purchase, and distribution of suicide prevention information in Berrien County. Thank you so much to all who helped plan and participated in this event .


We are beginning to discuss our fundraising plans for next year. If you are interested in helping, please contact us or plan to attend our next meeting (noon on Tuesday, January 15 at Riverwood).
