Students Walk For Suicide Prevention

Recently, the varsity kickline team and health classes of Garden City High School participated in the Long Island Crisis Center’s (LICC) Suicide Prevention Walk at Long Beach. Students walked to show their support and bring awareness to preventing suicide. This organization has come to the high school’s health classes many times to present information about suicide prevention and cyber-bullying. LICC is 24hours-a-day/7 days-a-week/365 days-a-year suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline. It is an organization committed to people in crisis.

This year, the varsity kickline team started off the walk by performing one of their intricate routines on the boardwalk. It was an amazing day for such a great cause.
