Matthew Gaines Suicide Awareness Walk Saturday
The 5th Annual Matthew Gaines Suicide Awareness will be in Texarkana Saturday at the Bobby Ferguson Park. Registration for the walk will be at 9:30 with the walk beginning at 10 am.
The event this year is teaming up with the 'Texarkana Out Of The Darkness Walk' to help spread awareness of the growing rate of suicide in our area.
This is a free event to help educate and also provide materials to help people battling depression or those family members that need resources to help their family members deal with the loss of a loved one.
The walk will have hot dogs, water, a memory wall where you can share your photos of your loved ones. A balloon release, that you can bring your own balloons to release, balloon animals for the kids, and more activities just for kids.
You can walk as far as you can if that's one lap walk or multiple laps. If you just want to come out and support the walkers and their families then please come out.
