TEARS (Together we Educate About the Realities of Suicide) Suicide Awareness was established to support individuals and families who have lost a loved one to suicide and also to provide important education in hopes of preventing suicide in our Grand Forks community and surrounding region.
TEARS helps organizations and schools with suicide prevention projects by providing resources made possible by donations raised in our annual Walk to Remember, Walk to Support which is held in September.
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911 or contact your local emergency medical services. If you are in a suicide crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 800.273.8255.
Walk to Remember, Walk to Support
Please join us on September 13th, 2015 at 1 p.m. at Lincoln Park/Greenway for the TEARS, Walk to Remember, Walk to Support Fundraiser.
We will have a guest speaker, music, sharing time and close with a balloon release to remember the ones that have been lost to suicide.
Consider creating/joining a team to help raise funds so we can continue to help raise awareness about suicide prevention in our community and to support the family and friends that are left behind after a loss.
Information for creating/joining a team can be found on www.firstgiving.com/altru.
Registration will be available on site the day of the Walk.
If you would like to have more information on becoming a "Corporate Sponsor" for the walk please contact Randy Schoenborn at 701.780.5618 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
