Running for Rachael

Let’s walk or run for city-wide suicide prevention in Hamilton.

Running for Rachael is brought to you by the Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton and is a community 5K Run/Walk taking place on September 26th, 2021.

Running for Rachael (RFR) plays a vital role in supporting the city-wide work of suicide prevention in Hamilton by bringing the community together to promote hope, help and healing through crisis support information, training, education and support groups.

Hope – LivingWorks Start is an online suicide prevention training program that will teach you how to recognize when someone is having thoughts of suicide and take meaningful action to keep them safe.

Help – Be Safe is a free mobile app that offers information and links to mental
health, addiction and suicide prevention resources in Hamilton. Download the app on the App Store or Google play.

Healing – Support groups for those who are bereaved by loss due to suicide.

When a community comes together, lives are transformed!

Our partnership with CF Lime Ridge is an important step in helping to engage the community. With Running for Rachael, everyone is part of the team. We celebrate and encourage one another to walk or run to help others.

Last year’s Running for Rachael was a fun event that was critical in supporting our 2021 city-wide suicide prevention work
