Kaiden Parris Event

Redwater, TX– On September 9 at 9:00 a.m. the Redwater Sports Complex will host the first Kaiden Parris Suicide Prevention Awareness Co-Ed Softball Tournament. There will be several events throughout the day including a butterfly and lantern release, a home run derby, music, concessions, a raffle, vendors and door prizes. In addition counselors will be on site to help anyone needing assistance.

The prevention is an outreach of Kaiden Parris’ parents. Kaiden became a victim of suicide on May 21, 2017. His family notes that he would have been 17 this year on September 9. The event is a way to celebrate Kaiden’s life and help raise awareness and promote prevention of suicide. Kaiden had been a football player and student at Mount Vernon and Redwater. His Facebook page is still maintained and notes that he had also taken classes at Texas Community College. He was a well-liked young man and had over 370 friends on his site. Kaiden has been described by his family and friends as having “a heart like tiger and a spirit like dragon.” It is hoped that the event on September 9 will continue to help raise awareness and help prevent future suicides.

On September 9 at 9:00 a.m. everyone is encouraged to come out and celebrate Kaiden’s life with the hope that prevention will help stop future suicides.
