LAS VEGAS – The Arena Football League and The Jason Foundation, Inc. have partnered for the 4th Annual Jason’s Week, an awareness event to draw attention to the “silent epidemic” of youth suicide. During this weekend’s games, each team will support The Jason Foundation in spreading awareness and prevention. Events, announcements, and promotional giveaways will take place for the audience attending the Baltimore Brigade vs. Washington Valor and Philadelphia Soul vs. Albany Empire games on Saturday, July 7.

The Jason Foundation believes that awareness and educational programs are the first steps in prevention by providing students, parents, and teachers the tools and resources to help identify and help at-risk youth. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for young people ages 10-24 in our country.

“We are proud to continue our support of The Jason Foundation and aid in the awareness of youth suicide through our Jason’s Week initiatives,” Commissioner Randy Boe stated.
