Hi there, my name is Darick Reed.
In 2013 I completed a 4 month,1264 mile walk from Missoula, Montana to Los Angeles to spread a message of hope, and to raise awareness and funding for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This is a cause that is near to my heart because close to one year ago I almost gave up on life. You can read my story here.
The walk was an amazing experience that I’ll never forget, but it was just the beginning…
In 2014 and beyond I will continue to use my story and passion to run a popular blog, help people battle fear, build a business that gives away half of its earnings to charity, speak in front of real people about hope, travel, keep fighting to raise awareness and funds for Suicide Prevention, and yes, write a book about the walk!
UPDATE: I am working to bring love and hope to Butte, Montana, where 4 teens have recently been lost to suicide. Please show your support by following our Love for Butte facebook page, or by donating here.
After more than ten years of battling with addiction and mental health issues that almost defeated me, it is simply time to WIN the war and help others by sharing how I am doing it day by day.
With Hope and Fire,
