Walk With Us – 2022
December 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: Newport Beach, 1641 Ford Rd, Newport Beach, CA 92660
Join us for a fundraising walk for Patrick’s Purpose Foundation. As a teen, Patrick suffered in silence before taking his life. He left behind letters that expressed his heart and sorrow for how hard it was to measure up to the standards of “success.” Patrick’s family is committed to raising awareness for mental health and sharing his story and words to help others. Patrick wrote these insightful words that speak to heart of his loneliness:
“So much pressure is put on kids to do good, and a lot of kids make mistakes. One slip up makes a kid feel like the smallest person in the world. All anyone talks about is how great they are or how great their kid is. It’s all about how great I am. It’s never about the other kid. The kid who maybe does not play a sport, have a 4.0+ GPA, but displays great character…Nobody can understand what people might be going through. Be nice to everyone, and most importantly be inclusive. If there is a kid out there who is alone it never hurts to sit with them or ask them how they’re doing.”
Registration includes a t-shirt, 1 raffle ticket per registration, and one TK Burger ticket for lunch. The cost is $35 for a single walker, $125 for a Family Pack (4 walkers). You must be registered by November 30th to guarantee getting your t-shirt and packet before walk day!
