Teen suicide is an all too common phrase that is affecting more and more families and is hitting closer and closer to home these days.
In an effort to combat those struggling, a depression and suicide prevention program, Faith Over Fear, will be held on Sunday, Jan. 5 at the Freeman Community Center.
The event, which runs from 4-8 p.m., will feature guest speaker Jon Setzer, three time national champion with the Sioux Fall Storm. Setzer will give his testimony and share his thoughts on these topics.
A live auction, supper, program and silent auction will be held with all proceeds going to benefit Ty Balvin medical expenses, an area teen who attempted suicide earlier this fall.
It is because of this, parents and sports programs from area communities are banding together to provide this program.
To make a donation to either of the auctions, or make a cash donation, contact Lynnelle Allison at 402.340.5961.
