Step Forward to Prevent Suicide

The Step Forward to Prevent Suicide events are held in South Dakota for suicide awareness and prevention. As our communities and state continue to experience the loss of family and friends to suicide, the Step Forward to Prevent Suicide event promotes hope and healing for all that participate. There is hope through raising awareness about suicide and funding prevention programs. 

Step Forward offers a 1.5 mile walk, 5K fun run and a remembrance ceremony. The event raises awareness and support for the Helpline Center’s local suicide prevention services and survivor support programs. 100% of proceeds stay local. 

If you are interested in learning more about starting a walk in your community, please contact Janet Harvey, Events Coordinator, at 605-274-1418.
