Do you have friends, family, and acquaintances who will join?   In the past, this rally has had over 4,000 people in attendance to show their support for mental health awareness, and this year Beacon is showing their support with a small team dedicated and passionate about their community and supporting those who don’t have a voice as well. Can we get more than 4,000 advocates to rally on behalf of 300,000+ vulnerable citizens who are struggling and who are at risk this September 2022? Have a voice, be ready to walk, and we’ll see you in Lansing, MI!       Contact Information: Beacon Specialized Living Alexander Furman Office: 269-585-0599
