BENEFITING: SURVIVORS OF SUICIDE INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 17, 2013
Did you know that in 2010 there were 38,364 people who died by suicide across the nation, and 1,265 in Michigan. That averages to one person every 13.7 minutes in the United States, and three suicides a day in Michigan. Mental illness affects nearly 60 million Americans. That is 1 in 4 people.
The Walk for Hope 5K Walk/Run hopes to bring people together to show support and understanding to those who have suffered or lost a loved one to suicide.
Help us eliminate the stigma of suicide and mental health issues as we raise money to further suicide and mental health trainings and events in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
