The Salt Lake City Moose are proud to partner with a local organization aimed at raising awareness about a serious subject that has recently affected our local hockey community. KiKi Crum is a local teen who grew up playing hockey in Utah. She recently created a foundation called Hockey Is Family – Suicide Prevention in hopes of developing and providing resources for hockey players everywhere. “I want us to spread suicide prevention and awareness so that we never have to lose another teammate to suicide.” Kiki sates “It is important to make sure no one feels alone and show everyone that they are loved and have support. I want the hockey community to come together ultimately as a family to achieve this goal.”
The HIFSP Foundation mission is to have a fully staffed support line, provide training and mentoring to coaches, as well as other leaders in the sport, and to help recognize the onset of depression in those who may be looking for a final out.
HIFSP will be attending the Moose Vs Mustangs game this Saturday, October 10th. Stop by to learn more about this foundation and to purchase your very own HIFSP yellow bracelet so that everyone will know YOU are family.
Remember, WE are family
Help us to prevent loss
