Join us for the 7th annual Gryphon Place Suicide Prevention Walk on Saturday, September 26th at Bronson Park in downtown Kalamazoo. The 5K cause-walk will raise awareness for suicide prevention, allow people to connect with each other, and provide critical funds for Gryphon Place. 100% of the community-raised dollars stay here in the community, supporting the local programs and services we offer. We’ll be there together on September 26th, supporting suicide prevention one step at a time, and we would love for you to join us.

We are planning to host our walk in person; however, we are making contingency plans for a virtual race if Covid-19 concerns prevent us from gathering in person. We also understand that some may continue to be uncomfortbale gathering in large groups, so we will have a virtual option regardless of whether or not the walk takes place as originally planned. Details for this option will come at a later date.

Walk to support your community. Walk to support each other. Walk to support your loved ones. Walk to break stigma, to raise awareness, to educate, to connect, and to save lives.
