Tonight in San Francisco thousands will gather for suicide prevention through the overnight walk. Together stories and lives join together to make a difference. For many who embark on this journey through the night there is a burden on their heart of a life gone too soon. As they walk the 18 miles through the night they carry the name and the memory of their loved one with them.
For many this is a very difficult journey…emotionally and physically but they take the steps in the right direction to turn their own grief into hope for others. Every walker pledges to raise a minimum of $1000. This money helps to aid in research for suicide prevention, fund resources and outreach for those in need and creates support groups for families who have recently experienced a suicide.
The reach of this event goes far beyond the 18 miles and the impact is felt for more than just one night.
Join me in supporting those who take this journey into the night.
