CLINTON, Ill. (WCIA)– People opened their wallets to give hope to students in crisis. There was a suicide prevention event. “Run for Life” organized it. There was a raffle, auction, and a drawing for prizes.

The money raised will help teachers and staff at schools find ways to stop teenage suicide. The organization hosting it is new, so this is the first time they had this fundraiser. They have several other events planned this year.
