Alive Campaign gaining national attention
Last fall, we wrote about the four (now five) Baylor students who were planning to bicycle from Waco to Anchorage, Alaska, to raise awareness for suicide prevention.
The guys are still at it, and have now gained national attention for their work. Earlier this month, the quintet hosted the “Dean’s List” music video countdown on mtvU; inbetween videos of songs related to their mission, the group talked about what they’re doing and how people can help. The show was filmed on campus; watch it online here.
The Alive Campaign has also moved beyond Facebook and MySpace to their own website, alivecampaign.org. There you can read more about the group’s mission and suicide prevention, get updates on their progress, subscribe to their newsletter and even donate to the campaign. A pretty impressive effort for anyone, especially a handful of college students!
Sic ’em, Alive Campaign!
