About the Second Annual Michael Cherry Memorial Walk


On October 5, 2017, Michael S. Cherry lost his life to a battle with depression and anxiety. Well-known and loved in his community, Michael was acknowledged in his obituary as “a kind soul in an angry world.” By the time Michael was out of technical college, he was assisting those in need, providing aid to Haiti in 2011, and participating in humanitarian efforts in Peru. He spared a lot of love for the hands-on, holding a passion for dirt biking and motorcycles and even owning a repair shop: Cherry City Cycle.

Michael was the son of Andrea Cherry and the late James Cherry. He was born on the Christmas of 1989, remarked as “his mother’s best Christmas present ever.” Michael was only 27 when he passed away.

On a daily average, 130 people lose their lives to suicide in the U.S. (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention). Quite often, people lose their lives to this epidemic because it seems as if there are no other options readily available. We’re here to show that there are.

In remembrance of Michael, the Oddball Foundation is hosting the Second Annual Michael Cherry Memorial Walk to remember Michael, celebrate his life, his warm heart and for his friends, family, and the community to gather together to raise awareness about suicide prevention, advocate for more mental health resources, end mental health stigma, and to let people know they are not alone.


Please join us on October 15th, at the Grafton High School Track and field, for Michael.
