I wasn’t expecting this. One of the best moments of my career. A huge donation to help The Jeff Yalden Foundation, Inc. Give Hope ; Save Lives. That is what we do every day.

In March of 2018, Mooresville High School just experienced two losses to suicide.  They quickly reached out to Jeff.  Soon thereafter, Jeff came to Mooresville, NC for a 15 hour day and spent a good two hours with these two families.

Crystal Hobbs and her family wanted to do something special for their son, Tristen.


About Tristen's Passing

Our beloved son, Tristen took his life at the age of 15. This came without warning or without words to any of his family that this was in his thoughts. Tristen loved life and loved everybody, He was known as being the class clown and putting others first.


The family asked us at The Jeff Yalden Foundation, Inc. if we would be a part of their event and take the proceeds?

We are honored and humbly grateful to work with the Mooresville Community again.  With the proceeds we've offered the local school community (About 75 Schools) FREE Suicide Prevention Training for their Staff and Teachers.  We plan to donate educational resources, posters, and FREE training to the local community.

Join us in Mooresville, NC for T-Man's 5K on Sunday, September 16, 2018 and help us make a difference.
