Join Us At The Zoo!
Join us at our 15th Annual Into the Light Walk which will be held on Sunday, May 5 at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo as we shine a light on depression awareness and suicide prevention. It is an evening gathering for students, educators, families, adults – pretty much everyone and anyone – who has been touched by suicide, depression or who just want to learn how to help. We will provide a light snack, informational booths, an inspirational program with keynote speaker, music from Bay High School and a twilight reflective walk for our registrants. It’s a powerful and inspirational night for all. Now, more than ever, people need to come together and find a solution to this ever-growing problem.
Why Should You Walk?
LifeAct has helped more than 230,000 teens understand the signs and symptoms of depression and has given them the tools to help themselves and others who may have shown any of the warning signs. With your help we can raise the necessary funds to support our proven suicide prevention program, Recognizing Teen Depression and Preventing Suicide, which served 30,000 teens in more than 200 schools last year alone. Of that number 2,504 students came forward asking for help. These numbers confirm that more needs to be done to help teens and their parents understand that depression is an illness that can be treated effectively.
