ABOUT OUR EVENT
February 23, 2019
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
San Juan Hills High School
Strength Over Silence (SOS) invites people of all ages to participate in the First Annual Walk for Wellness. The goal of SOS is to raise public awareness about mental health and suicide prevention. SOS is a student-led organization, developed and executed by the award-winning Future Problem Solvers Club at San Juan Hills High School.
The Walk for Wellness features a walk on the peaceful and scenic San Juan Hills High School track from 8:00 am to Noon. Although participants will set their own pace and duration, we encourage everyone to try to complete at least 12 laps (3 miles). This fun and educational event will include:
*Free "R U Ok?" book written by Kristi Hugstad
*Live music by Los Rios Rock School
*Free custom t-shirts (must be registered by Feb. 8th!)
*Water and snack
During the event, SOS will be handing out blue and purple satin ribbons and necklaces that participants can wear in honor of a friend or family member who has been impacted by mental illness.
Proceeds raised from the Walk will be donated to St. Joseph's Hospital and Mental Health Ward.
