AWARENESS & REMEMBRANCE
MAY 19, 2018
9 AM - 3 PM
ABOUT THE EVENT /
South Buffalo and the entire Buffalo/Niagara region have been hit hard in recent years by depression-related deaths. Suicide and accidental overdoses have unfortunately become increasingly prevalent. We encourage friends and family members who have lost loved ones too soon (for any reason) to walk and remember them in their own way.
The primary objective of this event is to raise awareness and let everyone currently affected by depression and addiction know their community supports them in their battle. With this in mind, we ask the entire community to take part in this walk, bring your children, and stand up for those among us who may currently be going through difficult times.
THEME BASKET AUCTION /
Local business from Buffalo and its surrounding region have graciously donated items and baskets for our cause.
Tickets will be available for purchase before, during, and after the walk. A winners board will be placed in front of each row to identify all winners. Winners may pick up their items after ticket confirmation.
