The event I am talking about is Particle Accelerator, and this is their 7th annual concert being held in order to raise awareness about depression and suicide prevention.
Particle Accelerator works in conjunction with United Services. United Services offer comprehensive mental health care to people regardless of their health insurance situation.
Particle Accelerator is personal to the people who started this great fundraiser, as their son and friend committed suicide. I understand their feelings, since my brother also committed suicide. It is a most helpless feeling to have someone you love take their own life. There is a lot of guilt. There is a lot of everything.
To take the initiative to turn an awful occurrence into something positive, like the Particle Accelerator concert, is amazing and something that not many others could or would do.
I salute the founders of Particle Accelerator.
You can donate online to this cause. Pay it literally forward and who knows who you help by doing this.
Then come on down to Rotary Park and rock on this Saturday!
I am a Putnamaniac that salutes the good people who organize Particle Accelerator!
