Lax2Live Lacrosse Games
For those not familiar with our story, our family created The Brian Dagle Foundation after the loss of our 19-year-old son and brother Brian in 2011 to suicide.
Over the past decade, we have developed many programs to reach every generation possible including LAX2LIVE. This special program recognizes Brian’s love of lacrosse and his passion for teamwork both on and off the field. It also recognizes that Brian, like many athletes, struggled with depression, anxiety, and hopelessness.
More than ever, mental health and suicide prevention is a team sport.
In that spirit, LAX2LIVE Lacrosse games are to promote suicide awareness and prevention.
If we have learned anything over the past two years, it’s how important it is to have difficult but necessary conversations.
As you take the field, take a moment to recognize that on the field and in life, you are not alone. Dedicate a game to each other. Be there for your teammates at this moment, and in challenging moments that may come. Help us, at the Foundation to begin a difficult but important conversation on suicide and mental health. If you know someone who might be struggling, reach out and ask them if they need help. If you need help, it’s ok to ask for it. Be the one to make the change.
Be the one to make a difference.
Remember, talking about this subject reduces the stigma surrounding suicide and mental health.
Start this difficult conversation and keep the conversation going.
