About This Activity

Join us 9 AM-12 PM at the Edoff Memorial/Lake Merritt Bandstand at Lakeside Park for Crisis Support Services of Alameda County’s 8th Annual Healing Hearts: 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention. This all-ages event will help raise awareness to the tragedy of suicide, help reduce the stigma associated with depression and mental illness, educate the community about available services, support local suicide prevention programs, and provide a safe place to heal for those who have lost loved ones to suicide as a community.

Encourage family, friends, and colleagues to support your efforts to raise money for an important cause. Make your own individual page or join a team to get started. You can set a goal, customize your page, invite others to join you in fundraising, and more!
