Countdown to Race Day


Crisis Support Services of Alameda County’s Healing Hearts Walk/Run/MOVE! for Suicide Prevention is back at Lake Merritt in Oakland.

This family-friendly event raises awareness for suicide prevention, reduces the stigma associated with depression and living mental health challenges, educates the community about community resources ad services, supports local suicide prevention programs, and provides a healing space for people who have lost loved ones to suicide and people who are currently living with suicidal experiences.

We are excited to return to the Edoff Bandstand at Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA, where we held the event every year prior to 2020. While there will still be the 5K walk/run around the lake . . . the event is so much more than that. Our vision is to bring the community together and celebrate healing through a diversity of movement activities. Members of our community will lead various kinds of movement including Tai Chi, dance, as well some exciting other movement activities. All physical abilities are welcome.

Schedule:  Arrive at 9am for the Health and Wellness Fair
Hear our emcee make announcements and many surprises! The 5K fun run starts at 9:30 am.

Building community is most important to us. That is why sign up is free with a suggested donation of $35. We are most excited about you getting your friends and family involved! 

Registration does not include a t-shirt. A limited number of t-shirts are available for $35. Visit:
