The 2020 event was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Here’s a recap of the 2019 event:

The sky was blue and the weather was warm for our 6th Annual Cycle or Stroll for Suicide Prevention event held on September 8, 2019 on the Sweetser Saco campus. More than 175 friends and staff registered to participate in the walk and ride to support Suicide Prevention in Maine. The event raised $11,000!

Participants enjoyed either a walk or bike ride on the scenic Eastern Trail which runs alongside Sweetser’s beautiful Saco Campus. After the walk/ride, participants enjoyed a barbeque.
