The Suicide Prevention Task Force of Central Kansas Partnership is holding a Remembrance Ceremony in conjunction with the “Golden Belt Glow for Life” Walk and competitive 5 K Run at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12, at Vet’s Park in Great Bend. The public is invited to attend the Remembrance Ceremony that will be held at the west shelter next to the lake. Community members who would like to recognize the memory of someone are encouraged to attend the Remembrance Ceremony and participate in the Recognition.
Late registration and check-in for registered participants for the Glow for Life Walk and 5 K Run will begin at 6 p.m., the Remembrance Ceremony at 7 p.m., and they will be followed by a warm-up, and the Glow Walk & Run at sunset.
Everyone who attends will also have an opportunity to sign-up for suicide prevention trainings for community members and a new Family & Friends support group.
