On February 10th of 2013, The Hutchison Family of Arthur suffered a devastating loss. Their 18 year old son Steven took his own life. No one would have guessed the severity of Steven’s internal struggles. He always wore a bright, beautiful smile, had a sense of humour second to none, was a promising athlete and a gifted student. Steven had a strong family and friend base as well. Who knew this could happen to “us”? Steven’s family and friends have come together to erase the stigma of mental illness with our young people. We hope to encourage those who were afraid to speak out, to ask for help and know that it is OK to ask. Through the #GetInTouchForHutch Walk and Run, this Online Auction as well as many other initiatives, we, the people who cared about Steven most, are hoping to raise awareness and funds to ensure no family has to endure this pain and devastation again.
Please bid often and generously. Thank you from The #GetInTouchForHutch Committee. SH44 Family is Forever
