The 1st Annual HOPE Walk invites the community to join together for suicide prevention. Remember loved one lost, support survivors, raise awareness in the name of HOPE for education and prevention.
In past years Cedar Rapids has had the suicide prevention walk be presented as the "Out of the Darkness Walk" which was hosted by the nationwide American Foundation of Suicide Prevention organization. This year, our planning committee decided to take a leap and create our own walk, to keep the funds, education and benefits local to our own community.
The HOPEwalk has partnered with Foundation 2 and will take place September 20th, 2014 in Cedar Rapids at the Ellis Park Lakeside Pavilion/Robins Lake. Registraion begins at 8am, pre-walk ceremony at 9:30am, and walk to follow. There is NO cost to walk. Donations are accepted online or in person.
Our goal is to create awareness and education on suicide prevention and support those affected by this national health crisis. Proceeds stay 100% local.
