Teammates For Life: Leveraging The Positive Power Of Peer Networks

Wake Forest University, The Center for Leadership and Character, the Mental Health Association and a host of campus partners are proud to host Teammates For Life: Leveraging the positive power of peer networks April 16, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. in Broyhill Auditorium, Farrell Hall. This event is free and open to the public. Doors are scheduled to open at 3:30 p.m.

Featuring former major league pitcher John Trautwein‘s personal story of tragedy and hope. When John and his wife Susie lost their teenage son Will to suicide in 2010, they saw no warning signs that their popular and apparently happy son was struggling. To raise awareness about teen suicide and the challenges our teens face in today’s world, they created the Will to Live Foundation. The Will to Live Foundation is on a mission to encourage kids to “talk about it” and serve as Teammates For Life as they encounter life’s sorrows and joys.

Join  members from across the campus community as we welcome John Trautwein on April 16, 2018 and become Teammates For Life.
