Dear Friends and Family,
On August 5, in loving memory of friend Alex Kelston, Josh and Jess Wagner, will be running the Hope for Depression Foundation 5K to Defeat Depression. The Foundation funds breakthrough brain research to advance the understanding and treatment of clinical depression. Awareness and discussion of depression, long considered taboo, is fortunately receiving more attention, but it remains an insidious disease that demands more of our resources. HDRF is the country's leading non-profit focused solely on depression research.
Depression is the number one cause of disability worldwide, and tragically, the leading cause of suicide.
We would be so pleased if you would support research for depression in honor of Alex. Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight to raise awareness about depression, fund advanced research, and end stigma.
Alex was an amazingly funny, brilliant friend and classmate and we are excited to be participating in this event to honor him. Please help us in working towards our fundraising goal!
Thank you in advance for your support.
Jess C. Wagner and Josh Wagner
