Hello and welcome to the homepage of Forever Edmond – run to remember, run to refuse, run for a reason! Thank you for visiting our site!
We are so excited to have you learn more about our run, our reasoning, and how you can be a part of the solution!
In a two week span in January of 2012, three Edmond teenagers lost their lives to suicide. Their families, friends and the community were devastated to a degree hardly imaginable by those lucky enough not to experience it.
The strength of the community shone throughout those dark times immediately following those tragic two weeks. The amount of love, caring, and genuine kindness known to Edmond and Oklahoma City was prevalent all over the city. We started this run because we want to see that same strong community come out to celebrate life and remember those we love so much.
The money raised from this event, a 5K and 1 mile fun run/walk, is going towards starting up our very first American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) chapter in Oklahoma. Since January, the number of suicides in our community has increased. The need for an AFSP chapter in Oklahoma is greater than ever. Please help that dream come to life.
R3 was created to remember the loved ones we lost, refuse to ever let this happen again, and realize that we are all here for a reason. Please come join us to celebrate life, family, friends and community on January 12, 2013.
Forever Edmond, Never Again.
