HOPEWALK WHANGANUI IS COMING!
On the 9th of December at 3pm we will be having our first ever HopeWalk in Whanganui!
Come and walk with us in a show of solidarity to raise awareness around Suicide Prevention and promote HOPE!
We will be leaving from Cooks Gardens, walking along Maria Place, along Victoria Ave to Moutua Quay and then along the river to the Train statue. There we will be letting off helium balloons to represent each person we have lost to suicide in Whanganui and a moments silence to remember them. We will then return on the same route, to finish our walk at Majestic Square.
We have also joined forces with the Whanganui District Council Youth Committee so that all walkers who are wearing a HopeWalk t-shirt will receive FREE ENTRY to the v i b e music festival that is happening straight after the HopeWalk! What a score!
If you don’t want one of our cool t-shirts, just come along dressed in as much yellow as you can!
We can’t wait to see you all there!
