Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Michiana Walk
As part of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Community Out of the Darkness Walks, I will be walking on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at OxBow County Park to draw attention to the importance of suicide prevention. I won’t be walking alone. I will be joined by many who share my dedication. Last year, over 550 Out of the Darkness Walks took place in communities across the United States, attended by a quarter of a million dedicated people who share my passion. Our movement is growing & this is the FIRST walk for the community in 8 years.
Like many, I walk because suicide has affected me personally. I lost my friend to suicide in 2018. He was a father, a brother, and my friend.
Our goal is to spread awareness of what is currently the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., and let others know they are not alone. Please help us ensure that mental health is looked upon in equal importance to physical health, and continue to bring hope to those affected by suicide. Join me in this walk. We need sponsors, donors, walkers, & volunteers. Information can be obtained by contacting Stephen Gray at show contact info
