If you are a survivor of suicide loss, we encourage you to bring a non-returnable photo of your loved one to the Walk to add to our Remembrance Tent.

AFSP's Remembrance Tent is an opportunity for Walkers to share special photos and written memories of their loved one with others, or to simply pause for a quiet moment of reflection. 

 

SURVIVOR ACTIVITIES:
