Kym Hilinski

Co-Founder, Hilinski's Hope Foundation

The Hilinski's Hope Foundation was founded in 2018 by Mark and Kym Hilinski to honor the life of their son Tyler, who died by suicide on January 16, 2018. Tyler was a Division 1 quarterback at Washington State University and his death was a shock to those around him, including his teammates, family and friends. Tyler showed no visible signs of depression or mental illness, and must have been suffering in silence.

The mission of H3H is to educate, advocate, and end the stigma associated with mental illness, while funding programs that provide student athletes the tools to support their mental health and wellness.
