    I am so grateful to see this event. As a certified speaker and trainer with The John Maxwell Team, I also work with Nick Vujicic in working with the youth on self image. That is a huge key to this. I have taught suicide awareness, prevention and the danger in bullying amongst other topics. PLEASE let me know if I can be of any assistance at this event in anyway. Thank you for creating a space for our community to become more proactive in this topic rather than reactive.

    Please note that the address for Cascade Park Baptist Church is incorrect. It should be 136th Avenue, not 13th Avenue as listed on the event information.
