SPEAK UP Walk
In memory of Jason Arkin and Sara Prideaux

October 9, 2016 ~ 9:00 am
Ironwoods Park, 14701 Mission Road, Leawood, KS



The Walk for Jason has become the SPEAK UP Walk, to be held on Sunday, October 9, 2016. This family event is intended to help raise awareness and reduce stigma of mental illness.

Funds raised through the walk will help us to educate teens about mental illness, raise awareness in our high schools, and prevent suicides. There are lots of ways to get involved, so make plans now!
