 ~There is HOPE ~

12th Annual Walk for Suicide Awareness & Prevention

Please join us and hundreds of mental health champions on Saturday, September 9th, for MHA's 12th annual There is Hope ~ Suicide Awareness & Prevention event.

Together, we can make a difference in suicide prevention. Walk 2, 3, or 4 miles along beautiful Lake Michigan to support suicide prevention and mental health. Join together with other families who have lost loved ones to suicide or join in as a mental health champion to show your support.  Enjoy a brat fry, silent auction, raffles, music, chair massages, craft/art activities & more! Proceeds benefit MHA's programs that work to promote good mental health & MHA's suicide prevention efforts. 

This year's Opening Ceremony speaker is Kristina Cahak, a registered nurse and mother of 3. After losing her daughter, Morgan, to suicide in June 2015, Kris became active in promotion of mental health awareness and suicide prevention. She has been involved in the Kids in Crisis series with USA Today/Gannett Wisconsin, as well as numerous speaking engagements throughout the state.
