TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – More than 500 people were doused in colored powder on Saturday to help give others a voice.
Surviving the Color 5K Run took place at Deming Park as a way to draw awareness to the issue of suicide in the community.
It also gives survivors a voice in order to help others who may be struggling.
“It’s a day to remember those who’ve been lost to suicide, but it’s also a celebration of life, because as survivors we live on,” explained Tammy Connor, Team of Mercy.
The run/walk on Saturday raised funds for Team of Mercy, a non-profit organization that helps those in the community who have survived suicide attempts.
