Annual Walk in Memory, Walk for Hope planned in Dayton
September 5, 2017
More than a dozen communities throughout Nevada are participating in the annual Walk in Memory, Walk for Hope event on Saturday.
The goal of the event is to increase suicide awareness and remember those who have been lost to suicide.
At Healthy Communities Coalition's Dayton headquarters, 209 Dayton Valley Road, the event will kick off at 10 a.m. with a keynote speaker who will describe some of the region's suicide prevention resources. Printed material about area resources and groups will be available at the event.
The short talk will be followed by a community walk through Dayton near the schools. Walkers will receive T-shirts, resource bags, and other items.
