Why folks show up to support suicide awareness and prevention.

This event is powerful. It supports those who have experienced the real and tragic loss of a loved one to suicide while uplifting attendees to know that we can make a difference. It supports programmatic efforts by MHA to help promote mental health and prevent suicide all year long. The event is also an opportunity for those who face or have faced mental health struggles to support one another and feel the support from our community.

Walk to honor a loved one. Walk for mental health. Walk to save lives.

Together, we can make a difference in suicide prevention. Walk 2, 3, or 4 miles along beautiful Lake Michigan to support suicide prevention and mental health. We must come together as a community to talk about mental health, illness, and suicide to have positive impact and make change.

Help us spread our message: There is Hope.
