Suicide Prevention Walk Returns To Peru

Posted by wlpo on October 18, 2013

Ignoring a problem won’t make it go away. That’s especially the case with suicide.

A walk next Saturday at Baker Lake in Peru is symbolically called “Out of the Darkness” and it’s geared towards raising awareness of depression and suicide. Registration for the walk starts next Saturday morning at 10. There will be speakers, a balloon release and the walk all starting after 11.

Money raised goes to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. In its first year in 2011, the “Out of the Darkness Walk” raised over 100 thousand dollars with Miller Group Media matching donations dollar for dollar.
