Framingham residents Amy Russo and Andrew McDonnell are running in the 2018 Boston Marathon to raise funds for Call2Talk, the suicide prevention emotion support call and text line. Call2Talk is a free and confidential mental health support resource in MA.
Funds raised by the two runners will support ongoing efforts to train more volunteers for Call2Talks call center and will allow the program to expand its presence and build awareness in the community, especially among young adults. Call2Talk has become a critical community resource and also answers calls for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, receiving calls from people living across Massachusetts and beyond.
Each runner has a goal to raise $3,000. To support Amy Russo or Andrew McDonnell, please visit their fundraising pages on the United Way of Tri-County website at https://www.uwotc.org/call2talk.
Call2Talk can be reached by calling (508) 532-2255 or texting C2T to 741741.
