Former NFL Quarterback to Speak at Local Nonprofit Fundraising Event
Date:9/22/2009

RADNOR, Pa., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Eric Hipple, former NFL quarterback and author, will be the guest speaker at Feeling Blue Suicide Prevention Council's Swing into Life! Golf Tournament, Wednesday, September 30 in Exton, PA. Eric Hipple is a former National Football League (NFL) quarterback whose ten year career was spent with the Detroit Lions. Hipple's accomplishments include two playoff bids, a divisional championship, and the most valuable NFL player award for the season. From 1995-2000 Hipple hosted the NFL pre-game show in Detroit. Since his 15 -year-old son Jeff's suicide, Hipple has devoted his life to building awareness and breaking down the stigma surrounding depressive illnesses. Hipple recently received the prestigious 2008 Lifetime Achievement award given by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. He also received a presidential citation at the American Psychological Association's 2006 Annual Convention for his six years of national community-based work combating adolescent depression and suicide prevention. Hipple currently serves as an outreach coordinator for the University of Michigan Depression Center.

Each day approximately 80 Americans take their own life, 11 of those are between the ages of 15 - 24, and 1,500 attempt to do so. It is also estimated between six to twelve people are directly affected by each suicide. "We need more people, especially men, openly discussing their experiences with suicide loss and depression," says Heidi Bryan, Executive Director of Feeling Blue Suicide Prevention Council. "To have a professional athlete, especially a football player, openly talk about his loss and experience is enormous and courageous. That's why we were so delighted when Mr. Hipple agreed to attend our golf tournament."

The tournament will be held at the Whitford Country Club in Exton, PA on September 30 beginning at noon. For more details on the day's events, visit www.swingintolife.org.
