The Mitchell College Mental Health Club is hosting its second annual Out of the Darkness Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) on Saturday, April 1, 2023, and invites the community to participate.
Sponsored by the AFSP, the Mitchell College Out of the Darkness Campus Walk 2023 will begin at the Mitchell College Green. Registration starts at 11:30am; the walk begins at 1pm.
Register ahead of time online or on the day of the walk and join an existing team, create your own team or register as an individual. Participation is free, but it is a fundraiser, and the day’s overall goal is $5,000. If you create your own team, you can set your own unique fundraising goal. The funds raised help to support the AFSP.
All are welcome to join us on our campus as we remember loved ones lost to suicide and support suicide prevention. Together we can change the conversation and end the stigma behind suicide and mental health.
“In our Community, Campus and Overnight Walks, those affected by suicide – and those who support them – raise awareness and much-needed funds, strongly sending the message that suicide can be preventable, and that no one is alone.” (afsp.org)
