The fourth Terence Tootoo Suicide Prevention Walk was held in Rankin Inlet on Aug. 28.

The participants were scheduled to meet in front of the Tootoo family home at 6 p.m. for a prayer to be said and 15 balloons released into the sky.

The walk would progress from the Tootoo home, around Area 5, and back to their home for juice and snacks.

The annual Suicide Prevention Walk was held in Baker Lake on Aug. 31, with the participants walking from the community to Prince River and back.
