It will be two years ago this August that Teresa Ingles lost her son, Deker Bauer to suicide.
Now a well-known Sarnia suicide prevention activist, Ingles now heads the Deker Bauer Foundation for Suicide Prevention, which has recently received its charitable status.
David Burrows of The Video Show Network (tvsn.ca) recently interviewed Ingles about her efforts, with specific mention of the upcoming Deker Bauer Memorial Skateboard, BMX and Scooter Competition, which will be held at Tecumseh Park (344 Russell Street, Sarnia) on July 16, 2016.
The event will run from noon to 6 p.m., with on site registration starting at 11 a.m.
Online registration can be done at www.dekerbauerfoundation.com. An entry fee of $15 for one event, $25 for two, or $30 for all three events has been set.
Anyone over the age of 6 can enter the competition, according to Ingles.
