On Monday, June 3rd, more than 250 people gathered for the 17th annual Survivor Resources Walk-a-Thon, as we walked to remember those that lost their life to homicide, suicide, accident or overdose. The event was a huge success and raised over $30,000! Every dollar given to Survivor Resources helps provide immediate and ongoing support for people who so deeply and urgently need it.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather as we took our walk around Como Lake, led by the Ramsey County Sheriffs Mounted Patrol Unit. Many attendees held signs or wore t-shirts in support of those they were walking for. Dinner was catered by Divine Swine catering and the food was delicious! The night concluded by decorating balloons to celebrate and honor our loved ones during a brief memorial service at dusk.

If you would prefer, donations can also be made through the mail at Survivor Resources, 367 Grove Street, St. Paul, MN 55101.
