Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step. Love and support from those around you can be the light that guides you, reminding you that you are not alone in your journey.

The Memorial Walk is a new addition to the Wayland Balloonfest. This will be a walk to remember those we lost too soon. We walk to let others know they are not alone and that suicide prevention is possible. The funds raised support those in our community that have experienced a loss or those who may need assistance getting the care they need.
