Tri-Cities Suicide Prevention Awareness Walk Starts Tomorrow
One of my favorite bosses sadly passed away from suicide and I still think about him often. He was a great guy with everything to live for and I miss him dearly.
Suicide Prevention has become a cause of mine and other Tri-Citians are coming together for the Take Strides virtual suicide prevention awareness walk that kicks off tomorrow on October 29th.
If you'd like to participate, Take Strides Tri-Cities has made it very easy for everyone to participate and give to a great cause. Take Strides released a press release with all the details on the event:
Community members are encouraged to register and participate in the Take Strides Tri-Cities virtual suicide prevention awareness walk. Starting tomorrow, October 29 through Sunday, November 1, people can share pictures of themselves walking or running around their neighborhood, on a treadmill, or wherever else they choose with the goal of raising awareness and remembering those we’ve lost to suicide.
Participants are encouraged to register for free at https://runsignup.com/Race/WA/Richland/TakeStridesTriCities.
Participants can use the hashtag #TakingStridesTC on social media to share pictures of their walk, and each day will have a different theme for which participants can dress. To kick-off the event, free goodie bags are available for pick-up TODAY, October 28 from 4:00-7:00 PM at 8697 West Gage Blvd. in Kennewick.
For more information on the event, contact event organizer, Chandra Markel, at Chandra.Markel@rsd.edu.
I remember my boss Roger fondly and anyone who's ever lost someone to suicide, this is a way you can help educate and help bring awareness to the plight of many who suffer unknowingly to the rest of us.
