The Rusty Bowers Suicide Prevention Coalition will host the 7th annual Rusty Bowers Life Savers Walk and the inaugural Rusty Bowers Community Day Saturday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We hope our community will come out to support this event to make it a memorable day.
We hold this event in memory of our son and brother who lost his life to suicide Oct. 17, 2009.
Rusty was a loving, caring person and he was loved by everyone who knew him. Please come celebrate his life and the lives of so many others in our community who have lost their lives to suicide.
We’ll remember our loved ones by a dove release by Dovely Moments. Arrive at 10 a.m. so that you can hold a dove and remember your loved one as you set it free. We’ll have a one-mile remembrance walk and release balloons in memory of our loved ones.
There will be music and our town police have so freely volunteered their time to sit in our Dunk Tank. For our little ones there’s a moon bounce, rock painting and face painting.
Alan Rasmussen, RRCS prevention specialist, and local agencies will be present to educate the public on depression, drug addiction and mental illness and suicide.
The event is free. Donations are welcome. All proceeds will benefit the Rusty Bowers Suicide Prevention Coalition. Make checks payable to Rusty Bowers Fund/RRCS, P.O. Box 1568, Culpeper, Va., 22701. For more information call Alan Rasmussen, 434-825-8913.
Thanks to our community for all of your support.
Brenda, Junior and Dustin Bowers
