About the event
The WILLPOWER 5K Run/1M Walk + Talk will be held during National Suicide Prevention Month- Saturday, September 23, 2023. All proceeds go to AFSP | Out of the Darkness and SpeakUp!
Join us at WILLPOWER - Empowering the Spirit, Healing Hearts. Together, let us show our community that silence will no longer be an option, that our willpower to overcome is relentless, and that no one should ever walk this journey alone. As we gather at the starting line, remember that we are an unstoppable force. Whether you walk or run, every step you take and every dollar raised will contribute to vital resources and education programs provided by the American Federation for Suicide Prevention and SpeakUp! helping youth realize they are not alone and have the courage to speak up and ask for help. Through your efforts, you will become a beacon of light for those still navigating through the shadows of despair.

So dust off those running shoes, gather your friends and meet us at Wissahickon Valley Trail Northwestern entrance for a beautiful morning to honor, celebrate and remember William and all those who struggle—educating the community to recognize depression and prevent suicide. We hope you'll join us!
A big thank you to the Friends of the Wissahickon (FOW), who tirelessly maintain the beautiful trails we are so fortunate to have in our backyards!
