People who have lost a loved one to suicide released balloons in their memory on Saturday.

It marked the sixth annual survivors of suicide awareness walk at Court House Square in Warren.

Everyone who participated has lost someone to suicide.

Loving Outreach to Survivors of Suicide, also known as LOSS, holds the event to raise awareness about the issue and let people know help is out there. It’s part of the message during the walk around the square.

“We hit each corner and at each corner Cathy Grizinski,” said Renee Frantz of LOSS. “She runs the Mahoning Avenue chapter; she talks about grief, the different stages of grief.”

LOSS, along with the  Help Hotline Crisis Center, were some of the sponsors of the event.
