About the event

The signature fundraiser for Sharing Kindness, the Suicide Awareness Walk is an annual three-mile walk in May that brings together community members to remember those who have died by suicide, support survivors of suicide loss, and raise awareness of the stigmatized issues of brain health and suicide. It is an annual day of healing, telling our stories and forming connections with others through shared experiences. 

Why we walk

Since the inception of the Suicide Awareness Walk in 2017, our primary goal has been to raise awareness of suicide. Why? Because the stigma that still surrounds suicide, grief and mental illness prevents many from getting the help they need, and we can only begin to reduce stigma through education and understanding. The walk raises funds for our nonprofit, allowing us to continue serving those affected by suicide and grief, providing programming on these tough subjects in our communities.
