Out of the Darkness walks happen around the country, and raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention. When you donate money or time to this organization you are providing for increased research and education about suicide, and for increased support for those affected by suicide loss. There is still time to get involved! Please visit the organization’s website here to join us.
