The track surrounding the Bishop Badger Football Field played host to the inaugural Suicide Prevention 5K Walk/Run this weekend, as supporters circled the stadium for a good cause.

The walk/run was founded and organized by Claudia Canales Buras, who tragically lost her son, Patrick Benjamin Buras, to suicide in September 2019 when he was only 13-years-old.
