Mission Statement: The Laura Twirls Suicide Awareness Foundation
The Laura Twirls Suicide Awareness Foundation is an independent foundation established by Jeri Pulver, the mother of Laura Maceika.
The purpose of the Laura Twirls Suicide Awareness Foundation will be to provide financial support to the Centegra Health System Foundation (CHS) with a focus on programs for survivors of suicide, including public speaking events, counseling (private and group), art therapy programs, and dance initiatives. These together with support of the CHS will bring the concern of suicide and the impact on a community out into the forefront and assist in diminishing the stigma attached with the issue.
The Laura Twirls Suicide Awareness Foundation will also provide financial support to honor young dancers who possess the desire to further their dance training. A contribution will be made annually on behalf of a young dancer yearning to attend a summer intensive ballet program held within the continental United States.
