My Ascension

The Big O Foundation is hosting speaker Emma Benoit

SAVE THE DATE! SUNDAY, AUGUST 20th from 2-5 pm at the Coralville Performing Arts Center.

The Big O Foundation is hosting speaker Emma Benoit:
Emma's story - A suicide attempt left 16-year-old varsity cheerleader, Emma Benoit, paralyzed, but propelled her on a mission to use her painful experience to help others find hope and stay alive.

MY ASCENSION is a feature length documentary that chronicles Emma's inspiring journey and quest to walk again, as she works to bring Hope Squad, a school-based suicide prevention program, to Louisiana.

The film also highlights the stories of two remarkable young people who tragically did not survive their attempts, and we learn first-hand from their families, friends, school officials and suicide prevention experts about the devastating effects of suicide and what can be done to prevent it.
