After what felt like months of clouds and rain, the sun broke through to shine brightly on everyone that participated in the 2019 Cape & Islands Suicide Awareness Walk. With over 325 registered walkers and countless other attendees, the walk successfully accomplished the important mission of spreading awareness about the impact of suicide on our community while raising funds to support suicide prevention efforts. This event was a collaborative effort between SharingKindness, the Cape & Islands Suicide Prevention Coalition, and the Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands. Not only does the event provide a caring environment for loss survivors to come together to remember and honor their loved ones but it is also an opportunity to share resources with those who may need them. Thank you, Sharingkindness, for allowing us to be a part of such an important community event!
