Walk to Fight Suicide
Every year suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined, and yet suicide prevention doesn't get anywhere near the funding to other leading causes of death. It's up to Walkers like us to make a difference. Together we can change the conversation about mental health and put a stop to this tragic loss of life.
Why We Walk
Because we need to change the culture.
Depression, bipolar, anxiety disorder, and other mental health conditions will affect 1 in 4 of us during our lives, and yet too often these illnesses go untreated. In the United States alone someone attempts suicide every minute.
Because students can save lives.
Students are a force for change. Be a part of this walk and join thousands of students across the country to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Because we can prevent suicide.
Together we can bring mental health conditions like depression and anxiety out of the darkness and put a stop to this loss of life.
Walk to support a friend, a loved one, or yourself. We all have a reason to walk, and each reason connects us.
