Samaritans of Merrimack Valley
Virtual Walk For Hope
October 11, 2020- October 17, 2020
Join the Samaritans of Merrimack Valley for its 4th VIRTUAL Walk for Hope to raise awareness of mental health challenges and suicide prevention in our communities.
Now more than ever, we need help to continue to provide trainings, support services for loss survivors and attempt survivors, and to keep our crisis line staffed so that we can achieve our mission. Because of COVID-19, the need for our services will increase over the next few years.
Virtual Walk: From October 11 to October 17th, please walk at least 4,000 steps a day. Each step represents someone’s mom, dad, son, daughter, colleague, friend, client, significant other, who died by suicide in September, 2018. As you walk, please send us photos of yourself and team so that we can post it on our walk page. We will also be sending out walker bibs with your number on it so you can take selfies as you walk and share them with us.
On October 17th, we will run a virtual ceremony starting at 9:30 am. Registrants will receive the link via email. We will have several guest speakers, announce the prize winners, and acknowledge our terrific sponsors.
We could not do any of this without generous people like you who believe in our mission.
YOU can also make difference by creating a fundraising page and asking your family and friends to support you as you participate in the Walk For Hope! We’ll provide you with all the tools, including a personalized fundraising website. Become a fundraiser and have an even greater impact on suicide prevention.
You will be prompted to sign-up as a fundraiser upon submitting your registration form. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.
