Wyoming Fighting Suicide

It was a chance to remember loved ones who were lost due to suicide Sunday at Lions Park during the 4th annual "Walk of Grace".The event is put on every year by "Grace For 2 Brothers", an organization started four years ago here in Cheyenne. 

 

Grace For 2 Brothers was founded by BJ Ayers because she lost two of her three sons by way of suicide. Wyoming leads the nation in suicides per capita, a stat BJ wants to lower. Her organization promotes suicide prevention and awareness so that no mother would have to go through what she's gone through. An estimated 900 walkers on more than 25 teams showed up Sunday morning, proof that they are continuing to make great progress in their fight.
