Rebecca had been living a “normal” middle class life with her husband and four children in a small
town in Upper Michigan when her 17 year old son, Trevor, died very unexpectedly by suicide in
2012. Her life took a major, unhealthy turn in the years following his death.

In 2016, she finally chose to come back to life and took the time to figure out what her purpose
was. As part of her healing, she left a 20+ year accounting career, lost over 35 pounds, started a
coaching business, and became outspoken about suicide and depression awareness in teenagers.

She is the author of the #1 Bestselling book “Shattered: From Grief to Joy After My Son’s Suicide”
and her new book “After Your Child’s Suicide”. Today she has a coaching business where she helps
other Moms who have faced a suicide loss to experience more peace, purpose and happiness. You
can reach Rebecca at her website at RebeccaTervo.com or on Facebook at rebeccalynntervo.

 

Memorial Table/Support Stones

Participants are encouraged to bring memorabilia in remembrance of loved ones lost to suicide.  Share your favorite photos, poems, letters, etc.  Items may be placed on the memorial table during the event and picked up following the event.  

Participants are also invited to stop by the memorial table and make a Support Stone.  Take a moment to decorate at stone in memory of a loved one or to encourage others who may be struggling.  Take your stone home or place it in a public space for others to see.  

Registration Fees

This event is free to register, however, we strongly encourage participants to donate what they are able to help support ongoing suicide prevention and support efforts in Baraga County.  Near the end of the registration process you will be asked to select a charity.  Please choose whether you wish for your donation to support the Baraga County Communities That Care General Fund (to address a wide variety of youth problem behaviors, such as drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, teen violence and delinquency, drop out rates, as well as depression and suicide prevention), or the Baraga County Communities That Care Suicide Prevention Fund (to address suicide prevention needs only).  Participants donating a minimum of $25 will receive a Warr;or Walk t-shirt.  Please register by August 24, 2018 to guarantee a t-shirt.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and ongoing support of this much needed cause.  Together, we can make a difference!
