Meridian presented its first annual You Are Not Alone: Suicide Prevention and Awareness 5K Walk in New Castle. Participants of all ages enjoyed a 5k walk around Baker Park in recognition of suicide prevention and awareness. Guest speakers presented powerful and personal stories to an attentive crowd about the impact suicide has had on their lives, and offered insight and inspiration to those who may be struggling with issues related to suicidal tendencies.
Free health screenings were available to all attendees, health and wellness resources and information booths from several local vendors were also on-site. Purple and teal iced donuts were provided by Jack’s Donuts.
The event was held during National Suicide Prevention Week September 9 – 15.
