According to the CDC's data on suicide risk within occupational groups, the construction and extraction industries were found to have the highest rate of suicide in the United States.  Join us, as AFSP combines efforts with leaders in the Construction Industry for a Hike for Hope. 

This is an event meant to engage the community members & the construction industry on the importance of mental health & suicide prevention.  

Instead of a participation fee, please consider a donation to help break the stigma.
