Fort Knox Annual “Suicide Prevention Lifeline” Run/Walk 5K

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month – a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. We use this month to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness, and connect individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services.

Join us on Friday, September 7, 2018, for the annual “Suicide Prevention Lifeline” Run/Walk 5K. This FREE event receives tremendous community support. If you are someone who has lost a loved one to suicide, we invite you to join us for a time of hope and healing. If you are a community member interested in supporting the issue of suicide prevention, please join us to increase awareness and support this important cause. Runners and walkers can enjoy a 5K route. Form a unit or organization team.
