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, have made a suicide attempt, engage in self-harm and/or have been 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 Our vision is a world where suicide, self harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.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 the San Francisco 2020 Committee:
San Francisco and the Bay area you are a unique and wonderful place place with energetic, caring communities. We are humbled by your support, your strength and your belief in our mission. Sincerely, we want to thank you for being so welcoming and warm. Our walk, now known as the Solace Sunrise Walk, is doubling in numbers every year and that success is down to your belief and courage. Thank you to each and every single one of you- the Volunteers, the Participants and our extremely generous Sponsors. Your attribution to suicide prevention and awareness is admirable.
