Step Forward To Prevent Suicide In Yankton

The Yankton community will be joining together this weekend to prevent suicide in our community.

The Helpline Center along with Bridging Yankton is hosting the annual Step forward to prevent suicide remembrance walk and ceremony to be held at Riverside Park Saturday morning.

Garrity says Bridging Yankton has used proceeds from previous walks to fund a crisis texting line, an updated social emotional curriculum, and assemblies focused on courage, character building, anti-bullying, and suicide prevention for students within the Yankton School District…

Registration for the walk begins at 8:15 Saturday morning at the Riverside Park Picnic Shelter, with the walk along the Meridian Bridge following the remembrance ceremony.
