A walk, run, and bike event to promote suicide prevention across the Upper Peninsula
Our CTC coalitions 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

Thank you Christian Motorcyclists Association for helping cover our route across the Upper Peninsula! This is our first year holding the event, and we only had a few short months to plan it. Many chapters of this organization stepped up to make sure we could carry our torch throughout the entire region.
Big shout out and thanks for all you've done!!
