1805 Tilford Lane, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho,
SPAN of North Idaho is holding its annual in-person Break the Silence 5K walk, run, skip, (or however you roll) this Saturday, September 10, 2022! This walk is in remembrance of those lost to the completion of suicide and an effort to raise suicide awareness and prevention. On-site registration and check-in will open at 8:30 AM on the morning of the walk at the pavilion, and the walk will begin at 10:00 AM.
The annual "Break the Silence" Walk begins at the beautiful Riverstone Park (1805 Tilford Lane),
nestled in the Village at Riverstone in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Walkers will start at Riverstone Park/Centennial Trail junction and travel along the beautiful Centennial Trail connecting to the Prairie Trail. The "Break the Silence Loop" sign at the halfway point of the walk will signify it is time to return
to Riverstone Park, where light snacks & entertainment will be waiting. A water station will also be available at the halfway point. Enjoy the music provided by local DJ Alejandro, and visit the park's
many community resource provider tables. (Lots of free swag!!) Suicide survivor resource information
and crisis intervention information will be available.
All proceeds and donations from this event go to further suicide prevention efforts and provide
community resources, education, training, and suicide loss support within the community.
