Team Abby

EE Managing Editor

Team Abby has been working hard to honor the life of Abigail Anderson by helping to raise public awareness of suicide prevention. Team Abby walked the Out of the Darkness Walk at Sherwood Island in Westport on October 11, 2014. This walk benefitted the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, with the team raising ample amounts of money for the cause. With $39,434 collected, the team has surpassed their goal of $4,000 by 985%!

“I feel that even though this is not how I pictured our community coming together, it was amazing to see how many people support the cause and love Abby,” states Trumbull High School senior Sarah Miller, who is a part of Team Abby. “I’m not sure what the team has planned for the future, but I’m sure there will be more opportunities to help others in a big way.”

Team Abby is still collecting donations to raise awareness and prevention, please visit the Team Abby fundraising page to help support the education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide:
