SAM – Suicide Awareness Movement

THE GOAL: Race in the Pinty’s series Luxxur 300 July 27th 2019 At Edmonton International Raceway In Wetaskiwin – than take my story overcoming multiple suicide attempts battling my mental heath to reaching the pinnacle of Canadian Stock Car Racing across Canada In hopes of helping others have a better understanding of Mental Health.

By sharing my story my goal is to help at least just one person – and I will feel like I have survived and battled so hard for a real reason.

But I need you help to reach my goal of racing in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.

My Story:
In June 2014 I attempted suicide that required major surgery in order to save my life. I would relapse again in June 2016, this was a common trend throughout my life. I have attempted suicide more times than I can count on my hands. Admitted as a formal mental health patient I was given the tools and took the time to understand my mental health. I was able to take control and improve in all areas of my life to turn my life around. Using #tbe Thoughts – Behaviors – Emotions I truly took control of my mental health.

What stuck with me the most while recovering was setting a goal. A real one. One that would push me in all areas of my life.
For me it was to race a stock car again (I raced from 2000 – 2006)

I want to race once in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series to show others they can overcome their mental health to reach their ultimate goals.

But I had to walk before I run! Racing IMCA Modifieds was a real challenging but at the same time an obtainable goal.
With hard work, daily dedication and practice I was able to achieve my goals mentally and physically.

I am extremely proud to say in summer 2017 I rejoined my family, passion and favorite pass-time; Stock Car Racing.

With a lot of help I was able to race in the Feature Stock division before jumping in the IMCA Modified to finish out the 2017 racing season. I have not looked back since. 2019 marks my third year racing in the IMCA Modified division in Alberta, Canada.

It is extremely humbling to say that within less than one year I went from being extremely suicidal, entertaining my vices and living a negative life to reaching my goal racing an IMCA Modified stock Car —

I have been sharing my story at various suicide awareness events, I have to finish my story, I have to reach the goal I set out to get so that I can really show others it is possible.

I have to reach my ultimate goal to ensure my story is powerful enough to help others.
