The STU22crew foundation was created in 2010 to promote awareness for the prevention of teenage suicide, the third leading cause of death among young adults age 15-24.
“STU22crew” is named in honor of Stuart Eiken and his perpetual uniform #22. “Crew” defines a supporting group for this important cause and derives from his Rock Bridge Bruins’ pep squad – “Bru-crew.”
The STU22crew mission is to improve the overall health of the mind, body, and heart of our youth, assist families in need and most importantly, save lives.
In addition to crisis management and assistance, STU22crew is working with 8 to Great – a dynamic program designed to enhance the well-being and life-skills of teens and adults.
Through our efforts we will save lives and keep Stuart living on forever!
