Golfers Raise Money for Suicide Prevention

Posted: Updated:

Despite the high temperatures today, golfers came out to Apple Creek Country Club to raise money for suicide prevention.

Today was the Second Annual Kurt Schreiner Memorial Scramble. Money raised will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Last year, golfers helped raise $10,000.

Every three days, someone in North Dakota takes their own life. With that kind of statistic, organizers say it's good motivation to work even harder to stop it.

"I lost my grandfather and my uncle to suicide and you want people to know that it's preventable and you want people to know it affects everybody. It's all ages, all races. It's not something you can pinhole," says Micki Savelkoul.

Savelkoul also says if you or anyone you know is dealing with the thought of suicide, it's important to reach out for help.
