Life;Story – our annual event to increase depression awareness while sharing the message that suicide can be prevented – will take place virtually from on Friday, September 18 through Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020.
“If you ever have any suicidal thoughts or feelings in the future, what I want you to try to remember is all these yellow shirts out here today. We’re here because we care. We’re here because we want to bring you hope, and we want you to be here and continue your Life;Story.”

Why should you participate in Centerstone’s Life;Story Run/Walk?
AWARDS & GEAR
The first 900 adult/student registrants for all distances get a newly designed t-shirt and commemorative finisher medal. A special shirt for the Kids’ Races will also be available.
What’s up with the semicolon (;)?
A semicolon is a punctuation mark that indicates there is more to come – unlike a period which indicates the end. Every life has a story worth telling. Centerstone wants anyone who has been touched by depression or suicide to know it does not represent the end. Whether you have lost a loved one to suicide or have experienced depression yourself, know there is more to come.
What charity does Life;Story 5K/10K support?
Life;Story raises funds to support mental health services at Centerstone for people with little to no resources. Life;Story funds help ensure that crisis services are available to our community.
May my friends and I register as a team?
Yes, you may create teams in memory or in honor of a loved one when you register. Teams may also be corporate, school, families, etc. Team names will be printed on the back of the event shirt for teams with 15 or more participants registered under the same team name on or before August 25th. Teams reaching 15 members after that date will not have the team name printed on the shirts.
When will my shirt/medal be shipped?
Shirts and medals will be included in the participant event packets to be distributed prior to September 18.
