Proceeds from the walk benefit our be nice. Programs and awareness throughout the community. Through the be nice. action plan (notice, invite, challenge, empower) we are able to educate students about mental illnesses and encourage them to exchange stereotypes for understanding, compassion, and acceptance.
Teams compete with one another to see who can raise the most money to support mental health and suicide prevention education provided by the MHF. The top teams are awarded and receive special recognition at the event. Every individual who raises $100 or more receives an exclusive SOS Walk shirt, which are not available for purchase.
