The Westchester Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) will hold our Spring "Hike for Hope" fundraising event at FDR State Park in Yorktown Heights on Saturday, May 2nd 2015

We are inviting you to join us as we continue our efforts to bring awareness to suicide prevention and mental health issues.

Westchester County has not been spared the pain of suicide yet amassing support for prevention and education efforts has been challenging.

The Hike for Hope is just that...Hope.

Hope for discussion, Hope for education and Hope for an end to the stigma so that there truly can be suicide prevention.

Our Hope is that the more people are educated about this struggle the more lives can be saved.

Thank you.
