5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention
Mark your calendars – the 2015 5K will be held on Saturday, September 26th at Artesani Park. More details to come!
When you looked at the crowds of teams and families and friends at the 2014 5K, you knew you weren’t alone. We run for those we remember. We walk for those we love. We come together to make a difference. To see pictures from the 2014 5K, click here.
Samaritans is a locally-based non-profit organization. All proceeds generated from the 5K help fund our life-saving services, including our 24/7 Helplines, Community Education and Outreach, and Grief Support Services for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. These vital services are available to the families, friends and neighbors, free of charge. We are the only suicide prevention walk in the Commonwealth that provides financial support to the 24/7 crisis lines answered by Samaritans, including those calls we answer from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
If you have questions about joining us at the 5K, making a donation, or anything else 5K related, contact us via email or call the Samaritans’ Development Office at 617-536-2460 x 5.
