The Indiana County Suicide Task Force is accepting registration for a 5K walk scheduled on Labor Day weekend.

Designed to support community education and suicide prevention programs, the Walk for a Wonderful Life will begin at the grandstand at Mack Park, White Township, at 3 p.m. Sept. 7.

Organizers will have information booths, children’s activities, live entertainment and refreshments available at the walk site. Walkers age 13 and over may register for $15 for the Wonderful Life 5K.

Every year, millions of Americans are directly affected by the more than 37,000 suicides and hundreds of thousands of suicide attempts.

The task force was established with the goal of preventing suicides through community education and intervention in a crisis and to provide support to those affected by suicides through education and communication.

Individual walkers may now register online at http:// conta.cc/1pJtWiL and pay through PayPal. Registration forms may be downloaded at http://bit.ly/1kOMHt3, with payment sent by mail. Walkers who pay the registration fee before Aug. 15 will receive a free T-shirt.
