Lines of Love Walk for Wellness

Words: Miranda Mason

On May 17 at 10 a.m. the first annual Lines of Love Walk for Wellness will take place on trails and sidewalks near Centennial High School. The 2K walk will promote awareness, education and support for depression, anxiety and suicide prevention.

Lines of Love is donating a portion of the proceeds to SPEAK (Suicide Prevention Education Awareness for Kids), which is a Maryland-based organization that has made several big steps towards their goal of promoting the prevention of youth suicide and dispelling the stigma surrounding depression and suicide.

Kathryn Peterson, a senior and president of Lines of Love, is excited to be able to donate to a local group that works towards the same goals as Lines of Love.

“Raising awareness about depression and preventing suicide is the main goal,” said Peterson.

Registration for the walk is due by April 30, and walk-up registration and check-in begins at 9 a.m. the day of the Walk. Each participant will receive one Lines of Love t-shirt, as well as complementary food, water and materials that promote awareness, support and education for anxiety, depression and suicide prevention. Everyone who completes the Walk will also receive a Lines of Love bracelet, with additional bracelets available for three dollars each.
