Sweetser Cycle or Stroll for Suicide Prevention

A family event in support of Suicide Prevention and Awareness

    Our annual Cycle or Stroll for Suicide Prevention will take place in Spring 2023. The exact date will be announced soon. Participants have the choice of riding 2, 8, or 14 miles, or walking 3 miles. There are two ways friends and family members can participate in this fun event to help raise funds and promote Suicide Prevention awareness. The cost to participate is $20 for adults, $10 for those 13-18 years old, and free to those aged 12 and under.

    1. Walk or Ride at your leisure in your own community

    2. Join us in-person! The Walk/Ride will take place entirely on the Eastern Trail in Saco, which runs along Sweetser’s campus and makes for a perfect setting for families, community members and outdoor enthusiasts.

    In-person Registration begins at 8:30am. The Cycle/Stroll starts at 10:00am. A barbeque and fun activities will take place afterwards. Online registration details to come.

    Fundraising is encouraged, but not required. We’ve created a pledge form for your convenience. There will be some nice incentive prizes as well.
