Tim Bergling Foundation Announces Return of “Dance for Life” Initiative

Hope is never far away in the midst of a dance—a concept the Tim Bergling Foundation knows all too well. The foundation, whose namesake pays homage to the late Avicii, recently took to social media to announce the return of its “Dance For Life” initiative.

Organized in Sweden to raise awareness of Suicide Prevention Day, which occurs on September 10th, the initiative originated last year at Lund’s Polhemskolan high school and successfully danced its way to change, garnering participation from over 120 schools. Its objective is to gather students together in song and confront the conversation surrounding suicide prevention, and all the ways in which their peers can be heard in the midst of their struggles.

“Today, on average, three young people take their lives each week,” the foundation wrote. “Dance for Life is working to change this by spreading awareness and breaking the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide.”

The Tim Bergling Foundation is managed by Avicii’s family, who made it their mission to advocate for the recognition of suicide as a global health crisis through philanthropic endeavors. Spearheaded by Avicii’s father, Klas Bergling, the organization has carried out a multitude of events in the artist’s honor after his tragic death by suicide in April 2018.

The foundation is encouraging any schools ranging from elementary to adult education centers to sign up to be a part of the heartening event. Registration comes with access to choreography that students can learn together as well as helpful health tips on the topic of suicide prevention.
