Solace House Sunrise Walk

Saturday, June 8, 2019

5:00 am

In the dark, early hours of an early summer morning, the Solace House Sunrise walk will lead participants from the darkest hours of the night toward the promising light of morning. The Sunrise Walk is an annual 5K walk/run, raising funds and awareness for suicide and self-harm prevention. The Sunrise Walk will take place in two locations simultaneously, Long Island City, Queens, and McLean Avenue in Yonkers.

Solace House provides free one-on-one counseling for those in suicidal distress, have made a suicide attempt, engage in self-harm, and/or those bereaved by suicide. All services are free of charge, easily accessible, and 100-percent confidential. Solace House envisions a world where suicide and self-harm—and the associated negative stigma—are replaced by hope, self-care, and acceptance.
