Here for Life Walk 2023

Registration is Closed

A fundraising event for Suicide Prevention Services of America

Event Information

Saturday, September 09, 2023 from 8:00am - 1:59pm

The Here for Life Walk began in 2006 as a way for the individuals to come together to walk with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to support each other and in memory of those who have died by suicide.  Please join us for our 17th annual Here for Life Walk.  The funds raised will support vital Suicide Prevention Services in the Illinois Fox River Valley.


The 3 mile walk at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles, IL starts with a brief moment of silence for those that have died by suicide.


When you gather sponsor pledges and walk with us you:


  • Honor the life of someone who died by suicide.
  • Show your support to survivors of suicide.
  • Forward the cause of suicide prevention.
  • Learn what you can do to prevent suicide.
