Starting in the dark & early hours of the morning and crossing the finish line just as dawn is breaking, the Solace Sunrise Walk is an annual 5k walk/run that raises funds and awareness for suicide and self-harm prevention. Currently based in New York with the hope of expanding across the U.S.,Solace House provides free one-to-one therapy for people who are in suicidal distress, those who engage in self harm and people who are bereaved by suicide.Our vision is a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance. Our mission is to support people and communities in crisis by providing freely accessible, professional services to all. By participating in the Solace Sunrise Walk you are helping us achieve this mission! Thank you for your support.
Here's a message from Emma & Nichola Hand, Our Catskills Committee:
Together we will walk, as dawn breaks, on May 30th in East Durham located in the Irish Catskills, the hub of a wonderful Irish Community. Starting at The Shamrock House at 5am, we will walk to raise awareness for Suicide Prevention, to break the silence and the stigma of Suicide. Together, we will bring light and hope to those in need. We are humbled by your support and sincerely thank you forbeing part of making a difference and joining us for our first Annual Solace Sunrise Walk, Catskills NY.
