Virtual Suicide Awareness 5K

Virtual Suicide Awareness 5K Race Description

Active Minds at Montana Tech is a student-led chapter that empowers others to change the conversation about mental health and suicide prevention. We raise awareness, share resources, and inspire action. We are dedicated to saving lives and strengthening our campus community.


Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. In 2018, 48,344 Americans died by suicide. In 2018, there were an estimated 1.4 million suicide attempts (AFSP). Not only are these statistics heartbreaking, but most deaths associated with suicide are preventable. By advocating for suicide prevention, you are taking a stand to support nonprofits and agencies dedicated to providing mental health resources to people in need.
