5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention

5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention
Saturday, September 23, 2023

Artesani Park, Boston, MA

Join us on Saturday, September 23 for the 25th annual 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention. All proceeds help fund our lifesaving services, including the 24/7 Helpline, Hey Sam — our text service for young people, suicide prevention workshops, and grief support services for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Events like the 5K enable us to make these vital services available to the community free of charge.

Thank you to the more than 1,500 participants who attended our 2022 5K to connect with our community and remember loved ones we have lost to suicide. This was our most successful 5K ever, raising over $640,000 for Samaritans’ suicide prevention programs and services, thanks to your support.
