How We Began

We lost my daughter, Kiersten, to suicide at the young age of 17. This tragedy left me and my family devastated. In the year following her passing, we became aware of the vast number of lives that had been touched by a loss to suicide. As a result of our loss, we resolved to work to prevent others from having to experience a similar tragedy. We wanted to honor Kiersten’s memory, and we knew we had to do something to help others. Kiersten’s Ride was born of tragedy and loss, but it was also born of love and hope.
