WHERE: HAHS Gymnasium (RAIN or SHINE)
TIME: 12:00 p.m. Registration

All proceeds benefit Help STOP the SILENCE Suicide Prevention & Support programs in providing local services to our community.
This is a 3 mile community walk.
The track and the gym will remain open to walk or for those who are unable to go the distance.
In the United States, a person dies by suicide every 12.3 minutes. Here in Luzerne County we are losing one person per week. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24 and college students.
The goal of this event is to unite as a community spreading awareness and hope that it is ok to ask for help and to support those who have been left behind.
~Walk to Honor a Loved One ~Walk to Support the Cause ~Walk to Raise Awareness
Please come and walk with us and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
We look forward to seeing you!
