Stayin' Afloat 2007
I also want to mention the upcoming Stayin' Afloat 2007 Fundraiser that will be put on by Cpl Chris Krueger in a few weeks. Stayin' Afloat 2007 is the second annual fundraiser for suicide prevention and awareness, with proceeds benefitting the Suicide Prevention Council of St. Joseph County and Ryan's Place in Elkhart County.

Contact: South Bend Police Department @ 574-235-7682 www.southbendpolice.com

South Bend Police Department Cpl. Chris Krueger is a survivor of his 29-year-old sister's suicide three years ago. To honor his sister Amy Elaine's memory, and to help prevent tragic loss to other families, this "celebration for life" will include prevention education along with a pancake breakfast, poker ride, public safety demos, "Dunk-a-Cop," a Bench Press and Strong Man Competition, East Race Walking and Rafting, FREE music from five bands-- and food, fun, face painting and more for the kids. The event will close with personal dedication and prayers.

Cpl. Krueger volunteers his own time, alongside many community partners, public safety personnel, family and friends. If you have any means to help or make a donation, more details will be coming up on the main SBPD website soon, or if you wish to get involved, please call 574-235-7682.
