About the event
Represent PRIDE at the 2021 Break the Silence Suicide Prevention and Awareness 5K Walk hosted by SPAN of North Idaho.
The walk is to remember those lost to suicide, raise awareness of this public health issue, and promote local mental health resources.
North Idaho Pride Alliance is proud to have a resource table at this important event to raise awareness of LGBTQIA+ resources. We are looking for volunteers to register for the 5K and wear any Pride shirt or flag they have or carry a CDA4Pride sign that we can provide.
FREE to register and participate, options to donate or get a Break the Silence shirt are available through Eventbrite.
According to a 2020 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health by the Trevor Project, 40% of LGBTQ respondents seriously considered attempting suicide in the past twelve months. More than half of transgender and nonbinary youth have seriously considered suicide.
PLEASE register in advance on Eventbrite to walk. You may also arrive at 8:30 AM to register in person. The walk starts at 10 AM. All details for the event are available in the registration link.
