"This was taken on June 22,2013 in Sioux Falls South Dakota, at the 2nd annual Step Forward walk/run, which raises money for suicide prevention and survivor support for our local Helpline. We were the team Stay Gold in memory of our son Wade whom we lost to suicide May 26, 2011. As difficult as it is to acknowledge how we lost him, we never want to forget how he touched our hearts and lives. We ordered 44 shirts and had a large turnout family and friends. Overall the walk raised $42,000 and had over 1,000 participants. We will be using our Stay Gold shirts for years to come and hopefully the team will continue to grow and we will be ordering more shirts!"
Custom T-Shirts for suicide prevention
Run For Life by Run For Life 5K - about 1 year ago
"The Run For Life 5K came about as a project for a group of juniors at Coppell High School. All of the money raised went toward the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in honor of our dear friend Jonah, who committed suicide back in October 2012. The tshirts we created theough CustomInk were a huge part of the fundraiser. Each one of the 200 runners received a tshirt in memory of the event and who it was for, Jonah."
Team Ari Runs 13.1 Miles for Active Minds and Ari Johnson by Emily Lerman - about 1 year ago
"This photo of Team Ari was taken at the finish line, after we completed the ODDyssey Half Marathon in Philadelphia, PA on June 9th, 2013. Team Ari was formed after our dear friend, Ari Johnson, committed suicide this past February. No one even knew he was struggling. Ari's friends and family decided to turn this tragedy into action by running in his honor (Ari was a huge sports fan, so a run seemed particularly fitting) and raising money for Active Minds, a suicide prevention and mental health awareness organization that aims to fight the stigma associated with mental illness and encourage help-seeking. In less than 3 months, we raised $62,824 for this organization in Ari's name. Our hope is that this money will ensure that no one else has to experience the tremendous loss we did, and no one struggling has to struggle alone. As for CustomInk, you were amazing to work with throughout this process! Your staff was so friendly and genuinely interested in our event and the cause we were running for. Because we had people joining our team up until the last minute, I had to repeatedly call back and change the numbers on the order, and you could not have been more patient and helpful every time. It was truly a fantastic experience working with you guys and I will DEFINITELY be using CustomInk in the future, as Team Ari intends to make this run an annual event! THANK YOU!"
Journey Out of the Darkness with Conversations With Tigers by Conversations With Tigers - about 1 year ago
"The pandemic of suicide claims the lives of more than 38,000 people in the United States alone. Every 14 minutes someone dies from suicide in our country. It's the second-leading cause of death among college students. These gruesome statistics unearth a population of millions of survivors such as myself and my friends and family members who are left paralyzed in the wake of such inexplicable losses. Six months ago I lost the most important in my orbit to suicide. No one should have to experience this type of loss. From June 1-2, I walked 16.5 miles with the four other members of my Conversations With Tigers team and thousands of fellow Americans across our nation's capital to bring national focus to the issue of suicide prevention. We exceeded our team goal of raising $10,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the leading national not-for-profit organizations dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research and education and to reaching out to survivors of suicide and those who suffer from mood and mental disorders. This shot was snapped just before the long journey. Our team felt extra optimistic about the cause donned in our sunny Custom Ink tees. As the captain, I had the wonderful task of designing the t-shirts, and the staff at Custom Ink was amazing to work with. Not only did they answer all of my questions promptly; every staffer provided real-time updates on the order status. I was also touched, moved and inspired by their donation to the cause :)"
AFSP Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk by Truckin for Michael - about 1 year ago
"These shirts were designed in memory of my brother, Michael, for the 2013 American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk. On the evening of Sat, 01 June we walked 17 miles thru the streets of Washington, DC to bring awareness to mental disorders and suicide prevention. Over 2000 walkers participated plus several hundred volunteers. We also walked in memory of other friends, family, and co-worker's loved ones lost to suicide under the "never to be forgotton" on the back of our t-shirts. The sleeve included an image of my brother and our team name, Truckin for Michael. I recently reordered these t-shirts to share with friends and family; everyone absolutely loves them. CustomInk was amazing from day 1 and helped me every step of the way to make this the best t-shirt we could have. We received rave reviews during the walk and also referred CustomInk to everyone who inquired. I will most definitely work with you again. Thank you!!"
