Suicide Awareness Run/Walk


Suicide Awareness Run/Walk


November 20-27, 2021

5k, 10k, Half Marathon

We are bringing awareness through this virtual fun run/walk that you can participate in from anywhere!


International Survivors of Suicide Day is November 20, 2021 and promotes coming together and supporting the survivors of this tragic event. When someone dies by suicide, they affect everyone who knew and loved them. For those people, grief and trauma can be especially difficult. Because the death is self-inflicted, coming to terms with the reasons and the stigma associated with it often makes it hard to grapple with, which is why they need all the support they can get.

All donations will go to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
