A beautiful morning run in Park Ridge with NAMI to “stamp out” the stigma of mental illness. Daniel Carcillo from the Blackhawks joined the group, sharing some of his own personal struggles and introduced his foundation Chapter 5, developed to help players transitioning out of the sport. We were lucky to have a family share their tragic story of losing their son to suicide. A poem was read in his honor, and doves were releases to honor those we have lost to mental illness. Happy to be a part of spreading awareness for an important cause.
