ACTIVITIES OF HOPE AND HEALING

Honor Beads: 

Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through. Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance and a walk that unites a community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. We all wear honor beads - each color shows our personal connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience.

WHITE - LOST A CHILD 
RED -  LOST A SPOUSE OR PARTNER 
GOLD - LOST A PARENT 
ORANGE - LOST A SIBLING 
PURPLE - LOST A RELATIVE OR FRIEND 
SILVER -  LOST FIRST RESPONDER / MILITARY
GREEN - STRUGGLED PERSONALLY
BLUE - SUPPORT THE CAUSE
TEAL - FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF SOMEONE WHO STRUGGLES
 

Memory Area:

Honor your loved one at the Memory Tree and view the Memory Boards from previous Walks.

Please bring a copy of a picture of your loved one (4”x 6” or smaller) to honor them at the Memory Tree. Pictures will not be returned and may be displayed at the future walks, awareness and educational events.

SILENT AUCTION
