Active Minds’ will be hosting their Walk for Life on Saturday, April 8th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm at the Ewigleben Sports Complex. Walk for Life is a suicide prevention and awareness walk. Different student organizations will be displaying informational boards relating to suicide and mental health. There will be performances by Vibrato Vibes and the Uke Club. A representative from Step-Up will also be discussing how to be an active bystander in a mental health situation. Unlike Relay for Life, you do not have to be part of a team to be part of the event. They are also not raising money for a certain charity due to Walk for Life being close to Relay for Life, but they will be accepting donations to help Ferris State’s Active Minds bring Send Silence Packing (a display of 1,100 backpacks representing the 1,100 college students that die by suicide each year) to campus.
