Canvas Health recently entered into an agreement with Stomp Out Suicide, a local organization dedicated to preventing suicide and promoting mental health through public awareness, to carry on its incredible mission and 5K event.
Sean and Katie Haines created the Stomp Out Suicide event five years ago after their daughter, Alissa Marie Haines, died by suicide at the age of 15. Since its inception, the Stomp Out Suicide event has grown from a small community event to one that attracts over 1,500 people from all around the metro.
“We feel that Stomp Out Suicide’s mission of bringing both hope and awareness of mental illness and suicide prevention fits well with Canvas Health’s mission. We feel proud and honored that Sean and Katie have asked Canvas Health to carry the Stomp Out Suicide event into the future,” said Matt Eastwood, Canvas Health CEO.
This year’s Stomp Out Suicide 5K is scheduled for August 19 in Wyoming, MN! More details coming soon.
