Join us as dawn breaks on ‘International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day’ in memory of a loved one, to support others bereaved by suicide, and for suicide prevention.
This year’s walk will be the twelfth since 2009 to mark International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. This global Day is when survivors of suicide loss come together to find connection, understanding, hope and healing through shared experience.
In Australia, about eight people a day end their own lives, making suicide the third leading cause of premature death from injury or disease, and the main cause of death among people aged 15 to 49. We lose more people to suicide than die on our roads each year.
Join us for a 5:00am start at the West Beach or Tennyson Beach location below, and walk in solidarity with those touched by suicide. You join for part or all of the journey, or meet us at its conclusion from 6:30am at Henley Square for a Remembrance Ceremony and light breakfast.
