Welcome to TEAM CHOWDER's fundraising homepage for the Samaritan's 5K, in loving memory of my dad, Jim Howder. This year's event is happening on Saturday, September 29th,10:00 am at Artesani Park,1255 Soldiers Field Rd. in Brighton, MA. We are participating in the 5K to raise funds and awareness for Samaritans, a suicide prevention organization serving Greater Boston and Metrowest. My main goal is to break the Stigma of Suicide. Let's do it together! Registration is only $35 to walk, $40 to run.
All proceeds help fund Samaritans' life saving services, including our 24/7 Helplines, Community Education and Outreach, and Grief Support Services for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. These vital services are available locally to the families, friends and neighbors, free of charge. Samaritans answers calls from Greater Boston, MetroWest, the State Wide toll free number, and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
You can help us prevent suicide by supporting our team through a donation or by joining our team at the event.

We hope that you are able to join us at this amazing event!
