Sunday 10th September is World Suicide Prevention Day, We are inviting Everyone to the Macedon Ranges Suicide Prevention Walk with the continued theme Creating Hope Through Action -We all have a role to play.
As our community continues to be impacted by suicide, Macedon Ranges Suicide Prevention Action Group believes we can all play a role in supporting people with mental ill-health, suicide ideation and those who are bereaved.
This is a pet-friendly event, with music, speeches, and a walk of the Woodend township and beautiful 5 Mile Creek (approx.4 kms), before returning to the park where coffee and food will be available.
This year and every year we walk to:
honour those whom we have lost by suicide.
de-stigmatise suicide and show no one need be alone in their thoughts.
show support for each other as a community.
Location: Woodend Children’s Park, 12 Nicholson St, Woodend
Cost: FREE please register prior to the walk to ensure catering demands are met to firstname.lastname@example.org
you may also request the name of a loved one who died by suicide to be read out prior to walking, please email email@example.com
Registrations will also be open on the day from 8:30am, speeches will begin at 9am and the walk will commence at 10am.
