Whitney’s Walk for Life

Whitney’s Walk for Life is an annual 5k walk and run that has raised over $1.7 million in funding for Health Education Specialists and our Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor to teach suicide prevention and mental health awareness in our local schools and throughout the community since 2004. The 5K walk and run takes place on the last Saturday of each July at Jubilee College State Park. 

The 2022 campaign is still open through December 31, 2022. To make an online donation please visit this link.
