Suicide Prevention 5k Looking For Volunteers

Samaritans 20th Annual 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention is taking place on Saturday, September 29th at Artesani Park in Brighton. Our event would not be possible without the help of volunteers. We rely heavily on volunteers to ensure our event runs smoothly for all that attend.

Each year, this event raises funds and awareness for Samaritans’ lifesaving services, including our 24/7 Helplines, Community Education and Outreach, and Grief Support Services for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. All of these services are available to members of our community free of charge. By volunteering your time, you help us put on a wonderful event for over 2,500 participants, most of whom have been affected by suicide in some way.
