Welcome to the 2017 Husky Help & Hope (H3) Walk traditionally hosted by Huskies for Suicide Prevention and Awareness (HSPA) and Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention! The H3 Walk is a UW Seattle campus and community-wide annual event aiming to offer support to survivors of suicide, commemorate those we have lost to suicide, and break mental health stigma.

Our 2-mile walk will start at Sylvan Grove and wind through some of the most beautiful parts of the UW Seattle campus to provide a journey of hope and strength with a projected number of 1,000 attendees.

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 that will go towards building and distributing Forefront Care Packages for families who have lost a loved one to suicide and HSPAʼs Wellness Booklet, a student resource which contains in-depth information on depression, eating disorder, power-based relationships, and resources to relieve struggles, and funding HSPA.

The event is FREE and dog friendly. We will have food, inspirational speakers, musical acts, and a drawing for prizes provided by our sponsors. T-shirts will be available for sale, please let us know your size through the registration link! We hope you will join us.

"Let's walk, let's talk, let's break the stigma."
