Make a note on your calendar or send yourself a reminder for the Shine The Light Walk with our friends at Gulf Bend Center.

The Shine The Light On Mental Health and Suicide Walk will be held on Saturday, May 2th. Everyone will gather at the Riverside Park special events area. Many of us know someone who has dealt with mental illness, and some of us even know what it is like to lose a friend or family member to suicide. Stand together and make a difference for others who are dealing with these issues right now just like the folks in these photos below.

The event is free to attend and open to all ages. You can get helpful information from local organizations who will be in attendance that day. If your group would like to be a part of the Shine the Light Walk there is still time to get space as an exhibitor. You can also still become a sponsor by calling 361-575-0611.
