Corizon’s St. Louis City Jails team (MO) participated in the 2nd Annual CHADS Coalition Trivia Night where they raised $17,000 for the organization. The CHADS (Communities Healing Adolescent Depression and Suicide) trivia night, in conjunction with their Kids Walking for Kids (KWK) event, aid in the organization’s overall goal of raising awareness about childhood depression and suicide prevention.

KWK is the largest depression and suicide awareness event of its kind in the Midwest. Teams are forming now to help fight for a cause that affects so many of our youth. Each team honors someone who has depression or has lost his or her life to suicide. In the months and weeks leading up to the event, teams will raise money to support depression and suicide research and prevention programs.
