Caregivers on the Homefront is holding its fifth annual “Will You Walk with Me?” Awareness walk on June 17, 2023 at the National WWI Memorial 2 Memorial Drive, Kansas City, Missouri starting at 9:00 AM. June is PTSD Awareness month. We are asking you to join us in making a difference. We want to start the conversation about PTSD and the mental health of the entire family. We will have a DJ, resource tables, vendors, and the KC Wolf will make an appearance. We invite walkers and rollers of all ages to come out and participate. Even if you can’t join in the walk, come support a great cause and start a conversation!
Funds raised from this event will provide the education needed to identify the causes of PTSD and suicidal behavior, the warning signs, and how to get help for someone in a crisis. This year we will have more resource tables and activities to take part in. Come out and honor those in your life.
