The 10th annual Into the Light Suicide Remembrance and Awareness Walk will take place on September 10 from 08h30 to 10h30, leaving from Durban View Park, Marine Drive, Umhlanga Rocks

The walk is held in conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day and anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide or who like to help create awareness is welcome to walk. A donation of R20 to cover the cost of materials will be appreciated.

“We will get together at Durban View Park from 08h30 for 09h00. We will write on pebbles in remembrance of loved ones lost to suicide - then take a short walk along the beautiful paved and wheelchair friendly promenade to the Pier. At the Pier our pebbles will be released into the sea. This walk is for everyone and all are most welcome. Join our cause and create awareness. Together we can make a difference,” says organiser Anton Lasich.

There will be free registration packs available. These include a yellow ribbon, Survivors of Suicide materials and resources, SADAG (South African Depression and Anxiety Group) materials and resources, a pebble for you to write a message to your lost loved one. A donation of R20 is asked to cover costs.
