Monterey to Pacific Grove and back
Suicide Prevention Service is pleased to announce this year's annual fundraising event, the Coastal Trail Walk, to be held on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The walk will begin in Monterey and follow the scenic trail towards Pacific Grove and back. This event follows the commemoration of World Suicide Prevention Day, which is Wednesday, September 10th.
A Spectacular Walk
The Coastal Trail Walk is a fun, family event and will begin a new tradition for all members of the community to celebrate life and support the programs of Suicide Prevention Service. The Coastal Trail offers some of the most scenic vistas and ocean views on the Monterey Bay. This is certain to be a memorable experience for all.
Family, friends, and other sponsors can support individual walkers’ participation by making online donations through this website. Click the “Sponsor a Walker” link to learn more!
For a Great Cause. Sponsorship benefits Suicide Prevention Service - a program of Family Service Agency of the Central Coast. Chances are that the suicide of a loved one, friend, or colleague will affect each of us. As a community, we are diminished by each and every loss. For family and friends, the pain can be unbearable without substantial support. Suicide Prevention Service provides education, a 24-hour suicide crisis line, school programs and grief support.
