A walk, run, and bike event to promote suicide prevention across the Upper Peninsula
Our 14 Communities That Care (CTC) coalitions serving all 15 counties of the UP are collaborating to host this ambitious and impactful event to prevent suicide. A semicolon-shaped "torch" will be carried through each county by walkers, runners, and bicyclists, with designated hand-off areas where the torch will be passed to the next county.
We have three main goals for this event:
Suicide rates have been steadily rising since 1999:
* Per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
** Per CTC Youth Surveys taken by 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders in the UP
Contact your CTC for more information about these ways you can help:
