A Beacon of Hope Walk & Fun Run is meant to help you raise awareness, generate funds and bring your community together. Erika's Lighthouse is determined to create cultural changes in communities across the country through depression awareness and suicide prevention education, teen empowerment campaigns and parent education.
You play an important role through bringing Erika's Lighthouse important message of hope to your community. Our mission is to make sure no young person feels alone in their depression. Together we can create a community of empathy and education. We create middle school and high school teen depression awareness programs so educators and teens can create safe spaces to learn about depression, letting students know they are never alone, and there is somewhere to turn.
