UAFS ROTC to Hold Suicide Awareness Event May 3

The Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) and the Student Veterans Organization at the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith will host an event for suicide awareness at 2 p.m. May 3 at the Bell Tower on the UAFS campus.

 

The event, called “A Walk to Remember,” will include speakers who have been affected by the suicide of a friend or loved one, a three-mile rucksack march symbolizing the burden people suffering from depression carry with them each day, and a balloon release memorializing those who have committed suicide.

 

Food will be provided afterwards, and it is free and open to the public.
