Event Details

About this Event:

Event Overview: ​In 2013, we had this last minute idea to organize a candle light walk to recognize the lives of teens that have been taken due to suicide as a result of bullying. From 3 weeks of quick planning, we had about 100 in attendance, and couldn't be more pleased with the turn out. We decided that this would become an annual event for foreverU to stress the importance of the community and coming together, rising as one, and loving one another for who we are. What was originally known as the Walk of Revival, has now evolved into foreverU's Unity Walk.
Date: Saturday September 23, 2017
Location: 1 Veterans Pkwy | New Lenox, Illinois 60451
Check-In Begins: 5:30 PM

Event Registration:

This FREE event will be a night of togetherness and oneness, where we reflect on bullying, division, and student suffering in our culture and become empowered to be the light in a hurting world. We will come together to hear and share stories of "overcomers", experience a walk with the intent of helping you to understand the value in who you are and the story you're living, and close with a time of celebration of unity. Community is a key component in reviving oneself. This year's event will have a new layout, a new focus, and a new intent like never before.  We want to  provide an atmosphere that will enable you to understand the importance of who you are, the story you are living, and the value you can bring to one's life. We're all at battle with something, and this is your invitation to understand the  overcomer within you, and support those who struggle with recognizing the value in who they are.

foreverU merchandise, information on getting involved, and more will be available at our booth. We are also a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization, so we ask for your consideration in making a tax-deductible donation the day of the event allowing foreverU to continually expand our mission.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:

#1) BRING PEOPLE

Because this is a FREE event, we want to have more people join us this year more than ever before. If you plan on attending, we ask that you bring 5 individuals of your own whether that be friends or the fam, and then encourage each of those 5 individuals to bring 5 more of their own. You get 5, they bring in 25. Let's celebrate this night together, as one body.

#2) BRING A JOURNAL

Whether it's a brand new spiral notebook from Target or an old vintage journal you found in your attic, BRING IT. This will be tied into various components of the walk as we dig deeper into understand the story that we are living.
