EVERY MONTH, 3,900 people lose their lives to suicide!  You can help us stop the stigma and create important conversations by showing your support for Illuminate 2022, a 3.9K Walk & Family Event benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).  Please review and let me know if you might be interested in supporting our 2nd annual event that will be held at The Links at Heartland Crossing starting at 6:00 pm on Saturday, October 1, 2022.

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, we will hold the 2nd Annual Illuminate 3.9K Walk & Family Event starting at 6:00 pm.  Take a candlelit stroll through the golf course, while supporting the efforts of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).  Everyone is invited to this free event, but for $20, you will receive a walking entry, which includes a commemorative t-shirt, swag bag, and a complimentary cup of warm cider at the end of the walk.  We will also have food trucks, games, and an auction/raffle.  The band, Six Figures will be performing from 8:30 pm-11 pm.  There are still opportunities for businesses to get involved through sponsorships, raffle or goodie bag donations, and promotions.  For more information, visit our website.  There is also information available through our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages.
