The Aboriginal Youth Suicide Prevention Walkers are stopping in Sudbury this weekend on their trek across Canada to raise awareness and action about youth suicide in this country. 

They will be rejuvenating at White Buffalo Road Healing Lodge as well as making presentations to youth in the area.

They will also be walking into Whitefish Lake First Nation Saturday, April 15 at 7 pm to attend a youth gathering at the community centre.

The Aboriginal Youth Suicide Prevention Walk is a group of youth walkers, who have completed three previous walks. This year they began in Sydney, N. S. with a scheduled arrival in Victoria, B.C. June 21.

On their walk they carry a powerful message of hope to aboriginal youth living on First Nation communities as well as speaking at junior high schools, high schools, juvenile detention centres and friendship centres.
