Kaley’s main two “Racing for a Cause” are Anti-Bullying and Suicide Prevention Awareness – often going hand in hand with Bullying among young people causing kids, teens and young adults to take their lives. This cause is so near and dear to her heart that she sponsors a “Yellow Ribbon” race at KAM Kartway each year to bring awareness to this serious tragedy that suicide is. It is one of the leading causes of death among young people today.
Kaley Sponsors this race around World Suicide Prevention Day which is 9-10-15 this year. Her goal is to make people aware of this epidemic and she wants you to know the signs. You can learn more about helping prevent suicide by going to this website. (http://www.save.org)
