A Message From Ryan McBride, President
Suicide is the Tenth highest cause of death in America but is often over looked or is too sensitive to talk about. I know a lot of people have mixed reviews on the subject, I personally have always had the question of “Why”? I have yet to talk to someone about this without them saying they either know someone who took their own life or know someone who’s family member and/or close friend took their own life.
Eight years ago my brother, unfortunately, made the decision to take his own life. The day after his death my family and I decided we wanted to have a benefit concert in Colton’s memory to celebrate his life, and right at two weeks after his passing we had the 1st Annual Colton McBride Sunday Funday Jam. The following year we started a charity golf tournament, The Colton McBride Sunday Funday Classic, and eventually formed Colton McBride Memorial Inc., a Non-profit organization.

After the first year, we started a charity golf tournament, The Colton McBride Sunday Funday Classic, and eventually formed Colton McBride Memorial Inc., a Non-profit organization.
The first three years all the proceeds from these events went to providing scholarship money to well deserving student athletes at Boswell H.S. in Saginaw, Texas, where Colton went to school. The last five years we’ve made the decision to start giving the proceeds to the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Tarrant County Loss Team, an organization to help prevent suicide and provide free counseling to survivors of suicide.
The LOSS Team of Tarrant County supports people who have lost someone to suicide. Their direct number is 817-733-9123. Click Here for more information about the Tarrant County Loss Team and the services they provide.
