Alive & Running supports Didi Hirsch's Suicide Prevention Center, which runs the nation's first crisis line and provides training, education and support for people who are considering or have lost loved ones to suicide. Our walk/run is a fun, family oriented event with Chikara Taiko drummers, a Kiddie 1K and an Expo with vendor booths to raise awareness about suicide prevention and help erase the stigma.
