SUICIDE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION
IN MEMORY OF TIM NEILD
I would like to invite your business to participate in my upcoming Suicide Awareness and Prevention 5K Run/Walk event hosted by myself, Kayleigh Wulf. I am a senior at Candor High School and would like to bring awareness to suicide and hopefully prevention of suicide.
This event will be held in memory of Tim Neild who was a local resident that sadly took his own life. All proceeds of this event will go towards the Tim Neild Scholarship Fund. This Scholarship is presented to a senior at Candor High School.
This 1st Annual Event is on October 12, 2019 and will be held at the Candor Elementary School.
About Tim Neild:
Captain Neild lived a life of service and did so much for others during his life. He was many things during his time on earth: a Brother, a Son, a Grandchild, a Nephew, a Friend, a Football player, a member of his father's racing pit crew, a Hockey player, a Carpenter, an Engineer, a Soldier, a Husband, a Father, and a Wounded Warrior. Tim graduated from Candor High School in 1998. He received his formal education from Delhi University and Binghamton University for Carpentry and Mechanical Engineering. Tim was an Afghanistan Veteran and a Bronze Star Recipient. He was a Captain in the Army National Guard in the 27th Brigade, Syracuse, NY and went to Sapper School for military training. He was an active member of the VFW Post # 1371 and a member of the honor guard.
In December 2013 he survived a major motor vehicle accident but never completely recovered from is his injuries that included a major Traumatic Brain Injury, 3rd & 4th degree burns, severely broken legs, collapsed lungs, etc...
During his healing, Tim was so grateful to have been saved by civilians that stopped to assist before the rescue crew arrived that he was determined to thank them all for risking their lives to save his. To formally honor them, there was a formal military ceremony as well as an event for a young hockey player that also assisted during the rescue.
To continue the healing process and receive optimal care, Tim spent time at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is Bethesda Maryland as a patient from April 2014 to June 2016 before returning to his home town of Candor NY to begin a new chapter in his life as a Disabled Retired Veteran. Despite his efforts and the care and concern of those around him, he left this world on his own terms in October 2017 after struggling with the effects of his multiple Traumatic brain Injuries, as well as a numerous physical, mental and emotional challenges. Despite his struggles, Tim continued to make friends and fond memories with those around him until his passing...
