The Barnstable County Human Services Department reports the suicide rate on the Cape and Islands is more than twice the state average and suicide is now the second leading cause of death for youth ages 14-25.
Together we can end the silence around suicide.
Join us to help spread awareness and raise money for suicide prevention on Cape Cod and the Islands!
The Cape and Islands Suicide Awareness Walk is a three mile loop walk in Orleans, Cape Cod, MA on Saturday April 28, 2018 beginning at 10 am.
Registration is online and also available on-site the morning of the walk beginning at 8.30 am. Water and refreshments will be available for walkers. Education materials will be available before and after the walk. All walkers who raise $50 qualify for an END THE SILENCE T-shirt.
All proceeds go to three local non-profits; the Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands, the Cape and Islands Suicide Prevention Coalition and Sharing Kindness, Inc. to provide education and advocacy for suicide prevention.
