Hike for Hope event coming up

The American Society for Suicide Prevention will host Hike for Hope/Cody's Climb on Sunday May 23, from 9 a.m. to noon. The hike is up up Prospect Mountain in Lake George. Check-in time is from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Last year, the inaugural Cody's Climb helped educate the community about suicide prevention. Over 150 people, including a large number of students, participated and raised over $12,000 to support community education, research and survivor outreach programs.

This four-mile hike culminates with a ceremony at the summit, including guest speakers, food, raffles, prizes and music by the group Filming Ohio.

Please note that the Hike for Hope will use the paved road up Prospect ; there will be no use of the mountain trails and transportation will be available to the summit for those who would prefer not to walk the full distance.

Minimum donations of $20 for registration are requested. Register on line by May 22 at: www.afsp.org/capitalregionny.
