We are so excited to see you in-person for the 10th Annual SPEAK Walk! This year the SPEAK Walk will be held in-person at Carmichael Park.
SPEAK starts with a week of educational activities with students and will culminate with a walk on May 1st, 2021. The walk helps bring awareness to the severity of teen suicide while also working to educate the community and break down the stigmas which surround mental illness.
Registration includes a swag bag with a SPEAK sign, t-shirt and mask which participants can pick up the day of the walk.
*Proceeds from this event will go towards future SPEAK projects
Adults $20 Students $15
