About this event

ABOUT THE FREE EVENT

The Daisy Walk is an awareness walk where people of all ages and backgrounds come together on guided or self guided tours of historical military monuments while laying flowers at the base to represent why they are walking. The Clay Hunt DAISY MONUMENT WALK charge is to debunk the stigmas placed on mental health as well as increase suicide awareness within the military and veteran community.

Each step brings us closer to a world without suicide.
