Didactic’s Latest & Greatest
Sioux Falls Mayor, Paul TenHaken, formed a committee in 2021 with the desire to create a new project whereby the mission would be to bring awareness to an important issue.
Didactic Productions is beyond honored and proud to have been asked to design the official logo for this project along with photograph the official portraits and the supporting documents.
The 437 Project was born of a passion for bolstering both physical and mental wellness and the often overlooked connection between the two. In 2022, the inaugural 437 Project will run 437 miles across the state of South Dakota, raising funds to support The Helpline Center.
The Helpline Center is the only accredited suicide crisis center in the state. It serves thousands of people each year by connecting individuals to resources and support, connecting local agency volunteers, and offering hope to individuals with thoughts of suicide.
This group of twelve runners is made up of South Dakota community leaders who will stop at nothing to influence and create positive change in The Mount Rushmore State. On Thursday September 22, runners will depart from Belle Fourche to begin the 437 mile relay-style journey across the state. Tackling the ever-changing South Dakota weather and terrain, runners will connect with communities across the state as they raise funds and awareness for this initiative, arriving in Sioux Falls on Sunday September 25.
Each year over 48,000 people in the United States die by suicide leaving behind thousands of loved ones to endure this life-changing loss. Text4HOPE is a crisis texting program providing critical outreach and resources, which is available 24/7 to all South Dakota high school students. Your donation to The 437 Project provides ongoing support to someone who has lost a family member or friend to suicide, connecting them with resources and support groups to navigate through the grieving process. Your contributions will also allow team members access to adequate training to ensure the skills necessary to identify those at risk of suicide and provide the life-saving means to help.
