SB Officer Launches Fund Raiser for Suicide Prevention Council

-

SBPD officer Chris Krueger launches “Staying Afloat” fundraiser for Suicide Prevention Council of St. Joseph County and Surrounding Areas (SPCSJC)

In memory of his sister Amy Elaine Krueger, South Bend Police Corporal Chris Krueger is donating proceeds from his annual July fundraiser to the Suicide Prevention Council of St. Joseph County and Surrounding Areas. While his sister’s suicide took away her time on this earth, Cpl. Krueger is dedicating his own time in support of the lifesaving efforts of this community service organization. And his personal hope is to hold on to Amy’s vibrancy—to keep her spirit alive through celebrating life.

So get on board with Officer Krueger and friends when they launch this year’s “Staying Afloat” Boat-a-Thon, July 29-30, for 36 hours in the St. Joseph River, just off the shoreline at Margaret Prickett Marina (next to Wyland’s Mishawaka Marine) at 13108 East Jefferson Avenue.

Fun, food, and all sorts of festivities will abound during the family-friendly event…and the public is invited to come out during park hours of 7:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. to cheer on Cpl. Krueger out on the boat. Musical acts, karaoke, K-9 demos, dunk tanks and other surprises are planned during the weekend.

What: “Staying Afloat” Boat-a-Thon for the Suicide Prevention Council…
When: Saturday, July 29, 8:00 a.m. – Sunday, July 30, 8:00 p.m.
Park hours are 7:00 a.m.—10:00 p.m. daily
Where: Margaret Prickett Marina, 13108 E. Jefferson Ave., in Mishawaka
Cost: Free—Fees for food/ beverages but portion of proceeds will be donated

While the event is free, tax-deductible donations to the Suicide Prevention Council of St. Joseph County are encouraged, and representatives will be on-site at various hours to educate the community about their programs. The SPCSJC fosters collaboration through needs assessment, education and training, and active participation in the Indiana Suicide Prevention Coalition. Since 2002, the organization has worked to address the community’s needs on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
