Susan Rosenstock is a friend and colleague whose teenage son Evan took his own life four years ago.
Where other parents in pain withdraw, Susan advanced.
Her cause is now teenage suicide prevention; her student-led organization, umttr ("you matter"); and her outreach, nationwide.
The nation needs Susan's efforts. The rate of suicide deaths among teens has doubled in the past decade, according to the CDC.
ummtr has just teamed up with The Capital Classic, the nation’s longest-running high school basketball All-American game, to launch “44, 44, 44,” a grassroots campaign to raise funds through ticket sales.
Funds raised through ticket sales will directly benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. And your involvement in the campaign will help increase awareness that teen suicide is preventable.
