Description

Pre-registration is closed, but you can still register on the morning of the walk beginning at 8 am at Arcadia Creek Festival Place in downtown Kalamazoo!

Join us for the 6th annual Gryphon Place Suicide Prevention Walk on Saturday, September 28th at Arcadia Creek Festival Place 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 28th, supporting suicide prevention one step at a time, and we would love for you to join us. 

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.
