Ruairi McEnroe's goal of running ten marathons this year to raise awareness for mental health and funds for Rattle the Stars was featured on ciLiving today. If you would like to learn more about Ruairi's story or help him reach his fundraising goals please visit his GoFundMe page.


Rattle the Stars will co-host a screening of Suicide: The Ripple Effect on July 25, 2018 beginning at 7:30 PM at the Savoy 16 Theater (232 W. Burwash, Savoy, IL 61874)


"At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to attempt to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive. Kevin has also been one of the key catalysts in helping end a nearly 80-year long fight to construct suicide prevention net on the iconic San Francisco bridge."

Tickets MUST be purchased in advance, no tickets available at the theater. We need 66 people to purchase tickets before July 12 for the screening to go ahead. Thank you for your support.
