Why the PITCrew? Meet Logan

In 2014, Tasha and Doug received the tragic news that a close friend had lost her son to suicide. Logan was only 14 years old. This came as a total shock and a wake-up call simultaneously.


After Logan's death, Tasha and Doug took it upon themselves to start something that would generate awareness, compassion, and acceptance for youth. The PITCrew Movement is a pledge to Logan and all of those who feel lost and unheard giving them a voice to reach out, ask for help and know that there is hope.

Why is it called PITCrew ?

In car racing, the PITCrew team is the team that comes together to help the driver stay in the race. The driver cannot finish the race without this team. It is an analogy that shows the importance of asking for help, supporting one another, and to know who is there to help us when we need it. 

The PITCrew is a compassionate movement that all of us can embrace by asking for help when needed and providing support to others.

"The PITCrew has been a great way to help individuals of all ages identify those who they can turn to during times of both struggle and triumph; in turn they can be there for the rest of their team as well.  Having a core group of people on your team helps to keep you from feeling isolated and alone.  In the course of presenting this to others, I have been able to identify those individuals who are part of my PITCrew."

"I truly believe the PITCrew is the missing link in mental and emotional development for youth today. Prevention programs should not only inform-- they should empower youth to know that their social networks must be tied to real human beings who love, respect, and support them throughout life.  Tasha's PITCrew trains and facilitates this better than anything I've experienced in three decades of teaching. This program doesn't just strive to reverse the rising suicide rates-- it develops character and relationship skills needed to balance school, work, and family. I want to be a part of something so relevant today."

"The PITCrew is not only a program but a way of life. We are able to take valuable research that has been drawn from the mental health field and implement it directly with youth. By helping cultivate connection with others, and identification of self students develop their sense of purpose. This leads to a potential of increase in confidence that allows us to reduce stigma and ask for help. The PITCrew has been a foundational piece of my work with youth and I am so lucky and proud to be a part of it's development and growth!"
