Walk to Fight Suicide
The Walk to Fight Suicide is being held at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at Granite Creek Park in Prescott. We are looking for a few people to simply represent a color which signifies the type of loss you’ve suffered. The colors that still need to be represented and the type of loss they represent are as follows: gold — loss of a parent, orange — loss of a sibling, silver — loss of a first responder or military, teal — supporting someone who struggles or has attempted suicide and blue — someone who simply supports suicide prevention.
If you or someone you know would be willing to represent one of the colors above, please let Ann Marie Boutin know as soon as possible. She can be reached via email at email@example.com.
