Thropic and Samaritans officially kicked off its partnership at the annual Samaritans 5k for suicide prevention in 2018. Team Thropic had over 50 participants and raised $27,000 for the cause that year.
Since then, Thropic has participated at the 5k each year and has helped bring in over $50,000 for Samaritans. Thropic founder, Max Skinner, has also participated on the Samaritans 5k Committee for the last two years.
"Thropic is leading one special effort as only three other fundraising teams had ever exceeded over $20,000 in the twenty year history of our 5K event. It has been amazing to watch Thropic's progress and we can't thank them enough for their support!" - Steve Mongeau, former Executive Director at Samaritans.
The Thropic community also voted for Samaritans to receive a portion of funds generated from our token sales in September 2021. We look forward to continuing this strong partnership with Samaritans!
