Please join us for the first annual Cedar Rapids HOPE Walk.
I am walking in memory and to honor my late husband, Patrick Hendrian(8/29/1969 - 8/19/1995). Please either join me on the walk or make a donation of any amount, to raise awareness for Suicide Prevention, the money raised stays local to help Foundation 2. Foundation 2 was my saving grace after Pat died, they helped me understand my feelings and helped me just get through each day, now is my chance and yours to help them and to help others, who like Pat, may just need that little extra smile today or tomorrow. Pat always made everyone else smile, he was a friend to everyone! Thank you in advance for your support.

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.
