Will to Live

In addition to Grief Awareness Day and Kate’s Club being recognized by the state legislature last Tuesday, the Trautwein Family had an opportunity to share with the house about their foundation, Will to Live.

The Trautweins established the foundation on October 15, 2010 in celebration of their son Will, who took his own life. The Will to Live Foundation was created to work with teenagers and young adults to help promote teen suicide awareness and education by creating and implementing fundraisers & kid centered activities to raise money for teen suicide prevention, education and counseling centers in our communities. CBS News covered their story.

Thank you to the Trautwein Family and Will’s friends who continue to celebrate his memory through the work of the foundation and in their day-to-day life.
