On Sunday, August 5, the final day of the Week of Hope, Audrey Gruss and Mayor Irving led a Walk of Hope and 5K Run around Lake Agawam in Southampton to benefit Hope For Depression. Participants came together to raise awareness in the fight to defeat depression. One hundred percent of proceeds from the walk fund groundbreaking research into its root causes.
