A message from Mike Famiano with Cycling for Suicide Prevention:

Among American adults, suicide is one of the top ten leading causes of death today, and suicide rates have increased steadily since 2000. For teenagers, suicide is one of the top five leading causes of death. Despite its prevalence, our ability to predict this killer or our ability to spot risk factors remain lacking. It is a silent killer. Despite this, it is preventable. That's why I'm here.

My name is Mike. This summer I will be bicycling over 1100 miles around Lake Michigan to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention. My trip will start and end in my home town of Dodgeville, WI. During this trip, I will be making 11 stops in my journey. My hope is to meet and talk to people who may have lost loved ones to suicide. My hope is to tell their story and make others aware that suicide is a real killer and more than just a statistic.

Departing my home on August 23, I will cover an average of about 100 miles every day, and I expect to visit the following towns. In Wisconsin, I will see Redgranite and Oconto. In Michigan I will stop in garden, Mackinaw City, Traverse City, Newaygo and Dowagiac. In Indiana I will visit Lake Villae. In Illinois my journey will take me to Sheridan and Pearl City. Finally, I will arrive back in my home in Dodgeville, WI on Labor Day.

During my trip, my goal is to raise money for the Association for Suicide Prevention. Any money raised will go directly to the AFSP.

Why am I doing this? Until 4 years ago, suicide was a statistic to me. It was something that "other" people did. Then, one evening, my brother took his own life, leaving behind a wonderful wife and two children. Two years later, my father took his. If my brother could hurt as much as he did, then other people can too.

Cycling is a hobby of mine. The trip is for fun. The cause that I am pursuing gives it special meaning. If I can bring hope to those struggling with the loss of a loved one, then the trip will not be just any bike trip. If I can bring happiness to those struggling with depression of contemplating suicide, then the trip will be a smashing success.
