Runway 2 Life

Me and Stephanie Cole, walk co-chair for this years Out of the Darkness walk in Richmond 

Runway 2 Life, a fashion show in support of suicide prevention training, was tonight. I thought I was in New York. Everything was so well done and the venue at Main Street Station so elegant. Best of all, the event attracts people we don’t often see at other mental health and suicide prevention events. It truly is special.

My hat is off to Alicia, founder, and Michelle, her worthy right hand woman volunteer, for all their hard work. And I had to run in my dress shoes to the stage tonight. I’m not going into the whole story there. Too tired. I sold my case of books so no heavy box to carry home. That’s always a good feeling. Made some phenomenal connections, too. Remembering my boy tonight with the audience.
