We headed to Artesani Park on the banks of the Charles River in Brighton to help plan the 21st annual Samaritans 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention. Samaritans, a nonprofit agency dedicated to reducing the risk of suicide, raises money to help fund their life-saving services, such as their 24/7 text and phone helpline, community education and outreach, as well as grief support services for those who have lost a love one to suicide.
