tcr suicide2

Dean Cobb and Duane Fox stand together on the front porch of a cabin Cobb built near Empire. Cobb vowed in the years since the suicide of his son-in-law, Adam Tupa, to do something to help prevent suicides in the future. He begins a 224-mile trek across Michigan, starting in Benzonia, today alongside his long-time friend, Fox. The men intend to talk with people along the way about suicide and suicide prevention.
