Help us Support The Out of The Darkness Walk

Suicide is a serious public health problem that takes an enormous toll on families, friends, classmates, co-workers, and communities, as well as on our military personnel and veterans.  41,149 Americans took their lives in 2013, the most recent year for which full data are available. Suicide accounted for 12.6 deaths for every 100,000 people nationwide, making it the country’s 10th leading cause of death. Unlike many other leading causes of death, suicide continues to claim more lives each year.

Help us support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention by joining us October 18th for the annual Out of the Darkness Community Walk to the benefit the Cincinnati Chapter of the AFSP.  For further information visit this site to find ways you can get involved http://afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=3191.  When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. 

Out of the Darkness Walk- Sunday, October 18 at Sawyer Point 

Out of the Darkness Community Walks are the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s signature fundraising campaigns, bringing together family, friends, colleagues, and supporters every fall for 3- to 5-mile walks. Join Izzy's and AFSP Sunday, October 18.  The Cincinnati Walk begins at 6pm at Sawyer Point.

IZZY'S UNDERSTANDS THE PAIN OF SUICIDE 

Izzy Kadetz Deli supports the AFSP (American Foundation of Suicide Prevention) which will take place on 10/18/14 at Sawyer Point with registration at 5:00 pm.

Zane Abraham KadetzIzzy lost his grandson, Zane Abraham Kadetz, to suicide 10/17/2008. Most Americans do not realize that more people die annually in the U.S. from suicide than do from breast cancer. Any death is tragic, but Izzy's wants the public to be aware of how many people are lost to depression and the suffering of mental illness.

Deanna Parobeck Kadetz, Zane's mother and an OB/GYN, For Women, Inc. feels her calling is to be there for the grieving families. One of the ways for her to cope is to go to the monthly SOS meeting (Survivors of Suicide) in Ft. Thomas -moderated by Carol and Ken Himes. "It is so helpful to vocalize our grief, talk about our loved ones, and hear what has helped others to cope."

"Almost everyone in the Tri-State has been touched by suicide. I find when I mention how Zane died, that others feel free to share who they've lost to suicide. In the group we talk about how our loved ones died from depression - some, like Zane, were a complete surprise to their family and friends. Some suffered for years, with depression and multiple attempts."

One of the biggest misconceptions about suicide is how cruel the victims were to leave their families behind. Studies show that survivors could not even think about their families, victims were only trying to end the pain they were in.

The walk is a way to honor the memory of your loved one - donations are accepted but not necessary. If in the future, you hear of someone who has lost a loved one to suicide, give them a hug and share a memory about their loved one -- that is very therapeutic for the family.

    Sharon Z. ★★★★★

Izzys is on our list of places to eat when we are in Cincy.   Top 3 for sure! ”

    Melissa D. ★★★★
