ABOUT THE WALK

Each year, more law enforcement officers die by suicide than are feloniously killed in the line of duty. At Blue H.E.L.P., we are trying to reduce the stigma surrounding emotional health for law enforcement, acknowledge the service and sacrifice of those we lost to suicide, bring awareness to issue and assist families in the aftermath. Proceeds of this walk will fund care packages for families and departments after a suicide, grief camps, training and other costs associated with awareness and prevention. 

We believe that officers who suffer emotional injuries should be recognized and their service to the community honored.

We believe it’s time to put names and faces to the men and women who have died because their emotional injuries became too much to bear.

We believe it’s time to support the families who have lost loved ones to those injuries.

We believe in the saying, “It is not how they died that mattered, it is how they lived”.
