SANDY, Utah, Aug. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mountain America Credit Union teamed up with Alex Boyé to present the Mountain America Charity concert on August 22, 2019, at the Sandy Amphitheater. Over $30,000 was raised to help support suicide awareness and prevention, with all proceeds benefiting the Bend Not Break Foundation.
Since 2007, suicide rates in Utah have tripled. Founded by Alex Boyé, the Bend Not Break Foundation was created to lift and transform lives through the gift of music. As an official advocate for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Alex travels the country to uplift junior high and high school students struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts.
“As the leading cause of death among Utah teens, suicide has affected all of us,” says Sterling Nielsen, president and chief executive officer at Mountain America Credit Union. “We appreciate the entire community coming together to help prevent future tragedies.”
Through August 31, 2019, donations can be made to the Bend Not Break Foundation by texting ALEXBOYE to 74121 or by visiting macu.com/charity.
