February 14, 2005 is a day that changed my life forever. At the age of 19, my son Cameron took his own life. As the founder of the charitable organization CameronHelps, a volunteer running coach at a local hospital, and as a public speaker it is my goal to make a difference: to save one life at a time. This mission is only achieved through the support and dedication of all individuals. Being a runner is a passion of mine. I know the tremendous mental, physical and spiritual benefits running offers. It helped me through my darkest of days. For this reason, I believe our Team Unbreakable Running Programs are very important, along with all of the awareness activities and initiatives we are developing. I cannot thank you enough for helping CameronHelps in achieving our mission.
