A farming couple in Wisconsin is using their corn maze to spread awareness about suicide prevention.

Julie and John Govin have a very famous corn maze at Govin’s Meats and Berries. In the past their corn maze has displayed designs of the Packers logo and even Garth Brooks. This year they are using their 11-acres for a more personal message.

They are trying to get the word out about suicide prevention and mowed the message “Your life matters” and the Suicide Prevention Hotline number into this year’s maze.

“Everybody is somebody’s most important person,” John Govin explains.

It is so true. Your life does matter and you are the most important person to somebody in your life.

The maze will officially open on September 21.
