Why Participate?

Join Bridging Yankton and the Helpline Center in raising awareness and prevention of suicide throughout South Dakota.  100% of all proceeds stay local in South Dakota.

For the last 6 years, Bridging Yankton has been working hard to bring awareness to suicide and provide prevention services to Yankton and the surrounding communities.  The Helpline Center has been South Dakota's leader for suicide prevention and aftercare services for over 30 years.  By stepping forward, your participation will help support the Helpline Center's suicide prevention trainings, crisis texting for high school students, and grief support services for survivors.

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, the Helpline Center's trained staff is available through our crisis line by simply calling 988 all day, every day.  ​
