Long Island Crisis Center
(LICC) will hold its 4th Annual “Let’s
Walk, Let’s Talk…Stepping Together to Prevent Suicide” event on Sunday,
September 30th on the Boardwalk at Riverside Blvd. in Long Beach. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m.
At 12:00 noon, a brief
program will highlight two high school students: Jamie Isaacs and Brooke DiPalma.
“Recent statistics about
suicide underscore the importance of the Crisis Center’s 24/7 hotline for
anyone to be able to access at critical times in their lives,” states Linda
Leonard, Executive Director. “Our Walk
is an opportunity for anyone who has been touched by suicide, either directly
or indirectly, to talk openly about a subject that has, for too long, remained
in the shadows.”
On-site registration for the
Walk begins at 11:00 a.m. Online
registration is taking place right now at www.longislandcrisiscenter.org
