Thank you for participating in the 6th Annual HOPEwalk! Over 750 participants helped raise over $33,500 at the sixth annual HOPEwalk!

On September 21, 2019 at Cherry Hill Park in Cedar Rapids, Iowa over 750 participants walked in remembrance of those lost to suicide and to raise awareness for suicide prevention in the greater Linn County.  All funds raised at the HOPEwalk are used locally for suicide prevention and awareness. To see the projects and organizations we’ve funded in the past, please see our What We Fund page.


The HOPEwalk is a local community based walk to remember loved ones lost to suicide, support survivors, raise awareness, and work on prevention in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area community. The HOPEwalk stands for…

H – Honoring
O – Openness
P – Prevention
E – Education

The HOPEwalk is a one-lap walk at Cherry Hill Park (approximately one mile) on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Check-in and day-of-registration will begin at 8:30am, with the opening presentation beginning at 9:30am.

Donations can be made online and on the day of the actual walk. Checks, cash, and credit cards will be accepted day of the walk. Online donations will continue up to and after the event. Donations can be made in support of a specific walker, team, or to the overall cause.

Those that wish to bring a photo or memory of their loved one can share on the memory wall at the walk. We will also share a roll call of those we are walking for. Counselors will be available at the walk should anyone wish to speak to them.

If you would like to volunteer at the HOPEwalk, a sign up will be coming soon.


All funds raised are kept in the greater Linn County Iowa area to serve our mission of suicide prevention, education, and awareness. See more details on our What We Fund page.
