SHU to host John Trautwein

Sacred Heart University’s Department of Athletics and the Human Journey Colloquia Series present “LIFETEAMMATES®: Leveraging the Positive Power of Peer Networks” with guest speaker John Trautwein, former MLB Pitcher and president & co-founder of the Will to Live® Foundation, on Wednesday, December 4, 7-9 pm at the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts, 5151 Park Avenue, Fairfield.

Former major league pitcher John Trautwein will share his personal story of losing his son Will to suicide in 2010 with no sign or warning. To raise awareness about teen suicide and the challenges our teens face in today’s world, John and his wife Susie created the Will to Live® Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to encourage kids to “talk about it” and serve as Life Teammates® as they encounter life’s sorrows and joys. Co-sponsored by Positive Directions Center for Prevention and Counseling, the Will to Live® Foundation, My Friend Abby, Alpha Tau Omega and Webster Bank.

This event is free and open to the public.
