We Got Your Back- Suicide Awareness Walk
Saturday, March 23, 2019
From event organizer Jordan Ott:
My name is Jordan Ott and I am currently a Junior at Lawrence High School. My older brother Isaiah committed suicide back in 2013, it has still been a very big part of my life. Since the passing of Isaiah, it's been in my heart to do something to fight this epidemic. Suicide has struck Lawrence, Kansas again, and thats what has pushed me to do an event so soon.
The "We Got Your Back Walk" is to help bring the community together, spread awareness about the suicide epidemic, and to be an outlet for people to seek help. At the event, there will be different agencies in attendance to help the community become aware of resources available for them and their loved ones.
The Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence is a partner organization.
