About this event

We are working to break the stigma around suicide and help the community find their people in the community. We have been talking for sever years about keeping this conversation going… and now we want to ask each of you, how will you start the conversation about suicide? It starts with a few caring words and a sincere connection!

**Families are allowed to participate without a paid registration- however they still must register the day of the walk and sign a waiver a liability.

We realize not everyone can pay- that’s okay- we just want you, your family and your fur babies there to walk with us and be a voice for those who can cannot have a voice!

How will you start the conversation… “Are you feeling ok? Are you sad? Do you feel hopeless? Do you feel safe? Are you feeling suicidal? Do you have a plan?”
