First responder suicides are at a rate that is higher than their line of duty deaths. Thirty-one officers have already taken their own lives since the first of the year. Our veterans are taking their lives at a rate of twenty a day. Can you imagine being one of those mothers or fathers, sons or daughters, husbands or wives that wake up each day without their loved one?
Our community is in a crisis and it is time to act now to prevent these senseless deaths. No more being reactive! It is time to be proactive!
Caregivers on the Homefront is holding its forth annual “Will You Walk with Me?” 5K walk/run on June 18, 2022 at the National WWI Memorial 2 Memorial Drive, Kansas City, Missouri starting at 7:00 AM. A walk for awareness of veteran and first responder suicide and those that love them. We are asking you to join us in making a difference. We want to start the conversation about suicide. We must make this difficult topic a common conversation and destigmatize the shame and guilt associated with suicide and mental health. We invite walkers, runners, joggers, and rollers of all ages to come out and participate. Even if you can’t join in the race, come support a great cause and start a conversation!
Funds raised from this event will provide the education needed to identify the common causes of suicidal behavior, the warning signs of suicide, and how to get help for someone in a crisis.
