Project Wake Up is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization with the mission to bring awareness of suicide on college campuses. According to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for Americans age 10 to 24. It is happening on college campuses at an increasing alarming rate.
After the directors fund and complete the production of the film they will fight to have it shown at colleges and universities around the nation as part of orientation programs and mental health awareness events and distribute it in order to get as many eyes on it as possible.
If you can’t make the golf tournament Wake Up accepts donations on their GoFundMe page.
