SPAN of N ID: Suicide Awareness and Prevention Walk–CANCELLED

This event has been cancelled due to the Covid surge in Kootenai County.
The KC Dems are a proud sponsor of the SPAN of Idaho Break the Silence 5k walk. This visibility campaign and fundraiser helps to shine a light on suicide. In addition, it raises funds to assist those whose lives are impacted by suicide. Did you know that Idaho is among the states with the highest rates of suicide? The awareness walk helps lift the stigma of suicide and give people struggling with suicidal thoughts a path toward hope. In addition to the walk, the event offers access to mental health resources and vendors offering relevant information about suicide prevention.

In past years, we sponsored this event and provided volunteers to support it. This year, we want even more people to get involved. In 2019, about nine hundred people participated in the walk. As an event sponsor this gave the KC Dems some great visibility!

So, please contact Cathy Kraus if you think you can volunteer at this event. She is our Community Outreach Chair and volunteer coordinator. Volunteers must be able to work a four-hour shift. We would also like every volunteer to wear a blue KC Dem shirt at the event. Call Cathy at 208-818-3030 or email her at catk1994@gmail. She will be happy to answer any questions and provide more details about the event. We hope to see you there!!

Also, if you can’t walk or volunteer, you can still help by donating to the Kootenai County Democratic Central Committee. Your contributions offset our sponsorship fee. In years past, your donations covered our entire fee. To contribute, make out your check to KCDCC and send it to KC Dems, PO Box 1297 CDA 83816. Please put “SPAN walk” in the notation line. For assistance, you can contact Cathy. If you would like to participate in the Walk itself, sign up at Evenbrite.
