DOWNEY - The Amazing Day Foundation traveled to UC Santa Barbara on Monday where it presented a $10,000 check to fund a Greek society intern for two years.The intern will work directly with campus Greek organizations to train them on dealing with the stresses of college life and how to recognize the warning signs that a peer might need help. The goal is to create a peer-to-peer relationship that will remove the stigmata that mental health comes with. The Amazing Day Foundation, which was created two years ago after the suicide of Downey resident Sean Feliciano, raised the money with their Walk for Life event last month. The organization has also begun working with the UC Santa Barbara alumni association to co-sponsor a campus run on March 12, 2011. Sean's fraternity, Sigma Pi, has taken the Amazing Day Foundation as its philanthropy and will involve the Greek society with the run.
