In 2015, over 44,193 people died by suicide in the United States, and there were 1,410 suicide deaths here in Michigan.(CDC 2015).

These deaths impact thousands of people each year.  However, with your help, suicide deaths are largely preventable.  Thousands of people are reaching out for help, receiving services and go on to live healthy and active lives. Mental illness is treatable, there is HOPE!

Walk for Hope is a 5K walk/run family friendly event to benefit Survivors of Suicide. Our yearly walk helps us to raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention, intervention and aftercare.  It gives survivors a chance to remember our loved ones, and helps to fund the services offered by SOS: suicide prevention, education, and aftercare.  This year we are moving towards "ZERO SUICIDE,"  an intiative whereas the GLBR will need to be involved.  

There is no registration fee, however, the funds we raise enable us to continue to do this lifesaving work in honor of those we lost to suicide and to support those who struggle with mental health issues.  All profits stay local to host trainings and events.
