On behalf of the Eddie Miller Memorial Foundation (EMMF) Board of Directors, I thank you for volunteering and participating in the 2017 Golf Outing and the October “Out of Darkness Walk”. Your support and involvement provided for a very successful year. The 2017 Golf Outing was a tremendous success in which two hundred and fifty golfers participated. This year we would love to top that, so please spread the word about the fourth annual EMMF Golf Outing on August 4, 2018 at Mallard Creek Golf Course.
The generous contributions received in 2017 made a difference nationally and locally in promoting suicide awareness, education about mental health issues, research, legislative action, and counseling. On the national front, the EMMF donated $5000.00 to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and locally, Cornerstone of Hope, received $5000.00. (See attached photos) As many of you know, Cornerstone is an outstanding local organization that provides programs and assistance to people going through the grief process, including those who have lost a loved one to suicide, accidental drug overdoses, cancer, etc. Please check their website out.
Recently, the EMMF partnered with Life Act, a local organization, whose mission is to prevent suicide by teaching young people to recognize the warning signs of suicide in themselves and their peers, and to seek professional help. Their trained, credentialed instructors deliver Life Act’s in-school educational program, Recognizing Teen Depression and Preventing Suicide, to more than 20,000 Ohio youth every year. Also, the EMMF website added a resource section that includes several links about mental health issues and organizations to assist. Please take the time to check out Life Act and the new resource section on the website too.
Thank you again, and we are all looking forward to seeing you this summer at the outing. Also, if you would like to volunteer, sponsor a hole, buy a sign, donate a gift basket, provide other assistance, or you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
