SPAN of North Idaho is holding its 4th annual in-person suicide prevention "Be The Light" walk on Saturday, September 16, 2023! Walk, run, or jog, through downtown St. Maries, Idaho, in remembrance of those lost
to the completion of suicide. The "Be The Light" walk begins at the Cormana Building where the Soccer Field
will mark the start/finish line of the 3K walk. Walkers will walk around the baseball fields, up 15th Avenue,
along College Ave. The turnaround point will be at the Loggers Memorial where the walk will turn
around and come down through town on Main Street, returning back at the Cormana Building.
The "Be The Light" trail will clearly be marked so you won't get lost!
Registrations that include the purchase of a 2023 Be The Light t-shirt or sweatshirt must be processed by
August 31, 2023 but if you register after August 31st and you realize you really need a 2023 Be The Light
t-shirt or sweatshirt, you can still order online and there will be order forms available the day of the event!
They just won't be ready for pickup until AFTER the walk. Online Registration closes on Friday, September 15th
at 5:00 PM MST. Suicide survivor resource information and crisis intervention information will be available.
All proceeds benefit Benewah County Suicide Prevention Action Network, Idaho to further suicide prevention
efforts and provide community resources, education, training, and suicide loss support within the community.
