Healing Hearts Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention

Saturday, May 6, 2023 9am Oakland, CA 94607 US Directions


Crisis Support Services of Alameda County’s Healing Hearts Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention at Laney College

This family-friendly events raise awareness to the tragedy of suicide, help reduce the stigma associated with depression and mental illness, educate the community about available services, support local suicide prevention programs, and provide a safe place to heal for those who have lost loved ones to suicide as a community.  

We are so excited to hold our race at the athletic field at Laney College in Oakland, CA and to be putting on the event in partnership with Peralta Community College District and Laney College.  We will start the race on the track.  We will make 4 laps around the track to make a one-mile run, timed by Aaron Ford Timing.  Look forward to many surprises.

Schedule:  Arrive at 9am for the Health and Wellness Fair
Hear our MC make announcements and many surprises! The 1 mile fun run starts at 9:30 am.

We are also adjusting the fees for new participants to a “pay what you can” model with a suggested donation of $35 — but we welcome any amount and are most excited about you getting your friends and family involved! 

Registration does not include a t-shirt. Limited t-shirts are available for $35.

Ask family, friends, and colleagues to support your efforts to raise money for an important cause. Make your own individual page or join a team to get started. You can set a goal, customize your page, invite others to join you in fundraising, and more! Click on "SIGN-UP" tab at the top of the page or Click Here for more information.

Another great way to support Crisis Support Services of Alameda County is to purchase a memorial sign that can be displayed on Laney College's "mini Jumbotron" electronic scoreboard. This can be in memory of a loved one or a shout out to participants. Follow this link for more information: https://runsignup.com/Race/Store/CA/Oakland/HealingHearts
