We walk because our memory of Kyle includes his positive attitude, his bright smile, his wisdom beyond his years, his love of family and friends, his love of everything outdoors especially fishing and football, and his ability to smile through what we now know were the worst times in his life. Sadly, we lost Kyle on October 31, 2016, nineteen days short of his 19th Birthday. We walk in memory of Kyle to bring awareness of mental health issues than can lead to suicide, to support prevention education, recognition of the suicide problem, and to provide our young people with better coping skills for life’s trials and tribulations. Kyle was so loved by his mom, Julie, brother, Ryan and sisters, Grace, Heather and Stephanie, also by his Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. Grace and Kyle always called each other "Kyotee."
