It's not a competition, nor physical race...this is a race to get Washoe County to #SuicideFreeBy2023! Suicide is the leading cause among Washoe County children ages 12-19. HELP US SAVE TEENS! We need full community support to get ahead of this crisis! Forever14, Project Discovery, and Sky Tavern are hosting a fun, innovative, safe way to promote community engagement, connection, and suicide awareness on the final day of National Suicide Prevention Week (Sept. 6-12, 2020). Bring your team of 4-6 family members or close friends to a mountaintop just 15 miles from Reno to see the city from a different perspective. Take a beautiful guided 1-mile hike with stops along the trail where #f14 Teen Ambassadors will lead you in activities designed to promote teamwork and build skills that will help you better navigate the up & downs of life. Finish to live music, food trucks, and a Community Advocate for Suicide Prevention Expo...enjoy the great outdoors with plenty of space for social distancing and more than enough fun for everyone!
The #f14 Peer Support Network hosts community service projects and "Connect Events" for teens, families, and communities that promote community engagement, foster peer-to-peer support, and teach problem-solving and coping skills in fun, engaging environments.

Forever14 was formed by a grieving family and a group of dedicated community members after the untimely passing of Caleb Stenvold at the tender age of 14. Caleb was a son, brother, student, athlete, and friend to all. Now he is “Forever14” and will never see what a bright future he had ahead of him...
We will fight the good fight for you - our sweet son, Caleb.
We miss you everyday.
