Raleigh, N.C. (April 12, 2014) — HopeLine, Inc., a Triangle-based nonprofit providing free suicide prevention and crisis intervention services, along with Delicious Skate Shop and Skateboards.com, will host the fifth annual Skate for Life event on Saturday, May 16, from 11:00 a.m. until dusk at Delicious Skate Park at The Factory in Wake Forest. Located at 1839 S. Main Street, Building 500 Wake Forest, NC 27587. Skate for Life focuses on celebrating teens and their families while educating them and giving resources they can turn to in times of trouble. The Skateboarding competition and family friendly day will as usual, be held in memory of local teens and young adults who have lost their lives to suicide.

“Suicide has greatly affected our community and this day is about showing the Triangle we have the resources to combat this preventable death,” said Margaux Austin, Executive Director of HopeLine. “Our annual event focuses on supporting teenagers and their families, we want them to know they are not alone and others are going through the same struggles.”

Skate for Life is a special event as it was started by two of HopeLine’s board members, and mothers, who both lost their sons to suicide. The first Skate for Life was held in May 2011 as a grassroots memorial event organized by friends and family of Dylan McNeill.  Dylan, a Wake Forest teenager and skateboarder, took his own life in February 2011.  Tragically, his best friend and fellow skater, Cody Arrington, took his life seven months later.  These losses sent shockwaves through the community and was a harsh reminder that suicide is the third leading cause of death among teens and young adults.

Currently, the U.S. has the highest rate of suicide in 15 years and N.C. loses over 1,000 individuals a year to suicide. Teen suicides have been a focus of HopeLine since a recent study by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) showed nearly 20% of teens have seriously considered suicide and over 14% made an actual plan.

Thanks to the success of Skate for Life, HopeLine has been able to launch their new Teen Talk Line Program that includes a website and instant messaging service to reach this younger audience. All proceeds from the event and raffle go to supporting HopeLine’s crisis call center and programs focused on raising awareness about the warning signs and risk factors of suicide.

Last year’s Skate For Life attracted more than 400 attendees and raised more than $14,000 in net proceeds, with a total of $33,000 raised altogether since the first event in 2011. This years Skate for Life will feature music, raffle prizes, food trucks, activities for kids, vendors and more. Admission is free to the public. The cost of registration to skate is $10 for beginner, intermediate and advanced competitors and includes a raffle ticket and free t-shirt. Skate for Life will include a sponsored competition with a registration fee of $25. The winners will receive more than $1,500 in cash and prizes. Registration starts at 10:00 a.m. the day of the event.
