Did you know that law enforcement and firefighters have double the suicide rates of other occupations?
The people that put their lives on the line daily for all of us are sometimes left wondering how to handle the trauma they see daily. One suicide is one too many, one life lost not only takes a hero away from our community, but it leaves a massive path of destruction behind it.
Wrestling 4 Life has developed a set of LifeCoins- a weighted coin with contact information for SafeCall, a line specially trained to help law enforcement and firefighters in times of crisis.
Stacked Consignment is hosting this event, Protect the Protectors, with the goal of funding a LifeCoin for every one of our Shakopee Police Officers and Firefighters.
Armed with a crisis contact, we can help our local heroes have access to the support and information that they need before, during or after a traumatic situation.
We don’t want to see another spouse, parent or child lose their loved one this way.
Please join us November 14 from 6-8pm at Turtle’s Social Center. Your $20 ticket buys your first beer from Shakopee Brewhall, an appetizer buffet and funds one coin on your behalf!
We will have $1 raffle tickets to win some great prizes, and if you have a special Law Enforcement Officer or Firefighter in your life, Wrestling 4 Life will also be selling coins for you to take home with you! Click the ticket link to prepay your ticket and have your name on the list at the door! If purchasing more than 1, feel free to put the names of your guests in the purchase notes and we will add them to our list!
Please help us complete our mission of making sure everyone on our list has access to this amazing resource! We love how Shakopee comes together as a community, and what better reason to do so than saving a life! Every life matters!
