30th Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope. This charity event has helped raise millions of dollars towards better understanding - and, eventually, maybe even curing - illnesses like depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, postpartum depression, schizophrenia, and anorexia. 100% of the money raised by participants directly funds local mental health research at the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Psychiatry. Each year, thousands of participants come together at the Angus Barn in Raleigh to show solidarity for family friends, and community members living with a mental illness. Onsite registration: 8am. Walk begins: 10am.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is the leader in the fight against suicide. They fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. The Out of Darkness Walks are held in hundreds of cities across the country. They give people the courage to open up about their own struggle or loss, and the platform to change our culture's approach to mental health. Charlotte Walk: Registration at 1pm, Program & Walk from 2-4pm.
