We encourage participants to register online, but you may also register the morning of the walk.  Donations can be made online or during check-in the day of the walk.  HOPEwalk t-shirts will also be available, with a recommended donation of $20.  The t-shirts will be first come, first served.

Following check-in, we encourage you to grab a drink or snack from our generous donors. Photos or names may be added to our memory wall. We also will have a roll call list that those  lost to suicide may be added. Names will be read prior to the walk. A photo area will also be available if you would like to get a photo of your team together before or after the walk.

At 9:30 the Opening Presentation will take place. Following the presentation, we encourage those that are able to do a 1 lap walk around Cherry Hill Park.

About the Walk:
The HOPEwalk is a local community walk supporting awareness and education on suicide prevention and those affected by this national health crisis. The walk includes an opening presentation and a lap around Cherry Hill Park in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
We believe that every life matters and want to gather to remember those lost, support survivors, raise awareness, and help prevent suicide in the Cedar Rapids community. Funds raised at the walk will be spent locally in the community to raise awareness and help prevent suicide.
