19th Annual Make a Difference…Save a Life 5K Run/Walk


We invite you, your family and friends to participate in our 5K Run/Walk to benefit Suicide Prevention Center, Inc. (SPC). The center is comprised mostly of volunteers who answer the crisis hotlines and provide help to people who are feeling overwhelmed. Your participation in this race, along with your donation, will help Suicide Prevention Center serve the crisis needs of the people of the greater Miami Valley (24 southwestern OH counties). Those wishing to walk/run in the name of a friend or loved one who died by suicide are encouraged to attend. Suicide is preventable! If you know what to look for and what to do, you can save a life.
