The fourth annual Plainfield Suicide Prevention Walk will be from 5-7 p.m. Saturday, September 9, 2023, at Plainfield High School-Central Campus at 24120 W. Fort Beggs Drive.
Participation is free and open to the community.
Attendees will walk the track for an hour in honor or in memory of someone touched by suicide.
The event aims to raise awareness of suicide, honor those who have died by suicide, and show support for those who may be considering suicide and need support.
The walk will feature a speaker from Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital.
Attendees can sign a banner with their reason for walking, buy a bracelet with proceeds benefiting Silver Oaks and Rogers behavioral health centers, take an inspiration sticker, and wear beads representing different levels of support for those struggling.
PHSCC graduate Kaden Dolbee created the walk in September 2019.
The annual event is run by members of the National Honor Society, including this year’s leaders’ seniors Isabella Torres and Annabella Campbell.
