Empower Tusc is inviting the public to attend the upcoming Tuscarawas & Carroll Suicide Memorial Walk in partnership with the ADAMHS Board of Tuscarawas and Carroll Counties and the United Way of Tuscarawas County.

On Sunday, Aug. 28, the community is invited to participate in the walk designed to remember those lost to suicide. Participants will gather at New Philadelphia Southside Community Park at 3:30 p.m. The walk will step off at 4 p.m.

“This event allows us to remember those we’ve lost to suicide while also continuing to strengthen relationships and support those who may be struggling today,” Empower Tusc coordinator Jodi Salvo said.

Sandy Williams, chair of the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation, will speak during the event, and light refreshments will be available.

Those attending are encouraged to watch the Empower Tusc Facebook page for delays and cancellations related to weather.
