Indoors or outdoor in a tennis courts, is a lot of fun! Trophies are homemade and the teams are encouraged to be creative with their uniforms. Trophies are given out for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and most donations contributed.
Everyone can get into the Awareness Spirit, even if they have a regulation dress code to adhere by. Just wearing the Suicide Prevention Awareness colors is fun! A display table is always good, but not required.

Shoe Memorials can be done a couple different ways (inside or outside). Both should be short term displays, 1 month or less. Try to include a brief description of what the display represents and resources for those struggling. Click here for more information
1. Shoes ( from a thrift store, not actual person's shoes) representing individuals from your community with a little information on a card about their life (hobbies enjoyed, Birth & Death Date, Name). NO Information about how they did or idealizing their death!
2. Shoes collected to represent the number of people that have died by suicide in your community, state or county in a set time frame. No names or pictures needed.

Try to have educational materials, resources and facts. If you can engage with someone with a short quick activity that is great. Simple give-a-ways like a pack of gum, pen, or bracelet. Some people will be embarrassed to take items or approach because they don't want others to think they are suicidal. Make a statement like, " You can take anything you need for a friend." "Help yourself, you might need something for a school project". (student)
