The Western Nevada College Student Veterans Club and the WNC Veterans Resource Center invite the community to partake in the third annual Veterans Suicide Awareness March at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 6 in Carson City.
Participants will walk from the intersection of U.S. Highway 395 and West College Parkway to the WNC campus at 2201 West College Parkway, and back, approximately 2.3 miles round trip.
The event brings attention to the ongoing reality of veteran suicide, which occurs approximately 22 times a day across the United States, and every 2.75 days in Nevada. Along the way, walkers will view signage that shares caring thoughts of veterans and also acknowledges the suffering and needs many veterans bring home from battle.
After arriving on campus, participants will place small American flags on the college’s front lawn to show solidarity with those who serve. Participation is free and donations will be accepted.
