Walk (Two laps around the circle drive)
Lap 1 - Remembrance/Honoring/Support
Lap 2 - Awareness and Prevention
This year the Cedar Rapids Suicide Prevention Walk Committee has decided to hold a local more community based walk to remember loved ones lost, support survivors, raise awareness, and work on prevention in the Cedar Rapids area community. We decided on the name HOPE Walk. The HOPE Walk stands for.......
H - Honoring
O - Openess
P - Prevention
E - Education
It is our goal to involve the local community more and use the donations raised in the community over the next year to support survivors, raise awareness, and work with local organizations to educate and prevent suicide.
