Shoe displays commemorate those who took their own lives and help those in trouble realize they aren’t walking alone.

UCC Church will be sponsoring a Suicide Memorial of Shoes.  Everyone is asked to bring a pair of shoes that represent the loved one you loss to suicide. 

  • IF you would like Suicide Prevention Coalition of Iowa County to supply a pair of shoes for your loved one please indicate that on your registration. We have numerous styles of shoes to display in your loved ones honor.


Please print this sheet to Identify your loved one.


If Suicide Prevention is supplying the shoes, Please Click here to register
  • Upload a photo and name to


Please place your name and phone number in the toe of the shoe for returning purposes.

(This is not needed if Suicide Prevention Coalition supplies the shoes.)

Bring the shoes to Keuler Insurance at 222 High Street in Mineral Point for people to observe and a banner explaining why they are there.  You will be able to pick up your shoes at 4:00pm on Friday, June 1.  Nightly the shoes will be brought inside to avoid theft or damage due to weather. The shoes then will be placed back on display in the morning.

If you are unable to pick up or drop off the shoes on that day please e-mail me ( 

Please spread the word, this is very healing and non threatening way to get involved.
