Walk, run planned to erase suicide stigma
We have cancer walks and we have memorial runs, but this weekend, Hastings will hold its first suicide walk.
It's called the Waffle Walk, and registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 26, at the Hastings Country Club. The walk/run event is an effort coordinated by a few Hastings people - Laura Gustafson, Erica Bauer and Chris Caulkins.
Each has their own reasons for giving voice to suicide awareness, but they all share a desire to remove the stigmas surrounding it.
