Step Forward Memorial Walk

Bridges Healthcare’s Step Forward Memorial Walk 2018 (formerly Suicide Awareness Walk) is a commemorative event scheduled for Sunday, September 16th 2018 at Fowler Field in Milford.

The ceremony (which begins at 9:45 a.m.) and 5K walk (10:00 a.m.) supports survivors and it allows them to pay tribute to their lost loved ones.
