Details for Spring 2017 Walk

Welcome to the 2017 Husky Help & Hope (H3) Walk hosted by Huskies for Suicide Prevention and Awareness (HSPA) and Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention! The H3 Walk is a UW Seattle campus and community-wide annual event aiming to offer support to survivors of suicide, commemorate those we have lost to suicide, and break mental health stigma.

This year the walk will be held on Saturday May 20th, 2017. Opening and closing ceremonies will happen at the beautiful Sylvan Grove and Columns – Seattle’s campus.

Check in will start at 10:30am and the walk will end at 2:00pm.

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 that will go towards building and distributing Forefront Care Packages for families who have lost a loved one to suicide and HSPA’s Wellness Booklet, a student resource which contains in-depth information on depression, eating disorders, power-based relationships, resources to relieve struggles, and funding HSPA. As a community-wide event, we hope to inspire other universities or communities as a model for suicide prevention towards systemic change.

The event is FREE and dog friendly. We will have food, inspirational speakers, musical acts, and a drawing for prizes provided by our sponsors.  T-shirts will also be for sale at the event. We hope you will join us.
“Let’s walk, let’s talk, let’s break the stigma.”

  1. I have tried to register for this walk and could not.
    Nancy West and Morgan West would like to register. Please send clear directions on registering.

    • Nancy, we’re sorry to hear about the difficulties with registering! We’re doing our best to work with a free website on our limited budget this year. We’ll send you some more detailed instructions via email. Thanks for the feedback – and if anyone else is reading this, feel free to email us at hspa@uw.edu if you’re having any difficulties!

    • Hi Nina! The opening ceremony will start at 11am, with the walk starting at about noon. It is a 3-mile walk that typically takes people about an hour or so. We will have a brief closing (10-15 mins) and wrap up by about 1:30pm. We encourage you to come for the whole event, but if you are only able to attend part of it, that’s fine too!
