I want to invite you all to join HopeLine and Triangle Survivors of Suicide for the upcoming I Will Survive Walk on November 9th. The inaugural walk started last year with TSOS hosting the walk at Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh. With over 200 participants the walk was a huge success and opportunity for loved ones throughout the Triangle to join together in memory of those we have lost. This year HopeLine and Triangle SOS have partnered for the survivors walk to raise suicide awareness, promote suicide prevention, and provide support to those who have lost a loved one to suicide. The 3 mile walk goes throughout the streets of downtown Raleigh.
Triangle SOS offers a support group for people who have experienced the loss of a loved one by suicide. They host meetings in Raleigh, Wake Forest, and Chapel Hill. The partnership with HopeLine was a seamless one as HopeLine is the areas only free and confidential crisis line. This walk is a time for the community to come together and show support for one another. Throughout the day participants are able to talk with others who are struggling to understand and deal with their own tragic loss, and remember a special person lost to suicide. We hope you will join us for the day or help us spread the word.
