Suicide Prevention Walk In Peru Helps Illinois Get National Award

Posted by wlpo on February 7, 2014

The Out of the Darkness Walk in Peru is helping Illinois get national recognition.

The Illinois Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention won Chapter of the Year at the national conference.  Illinois’ 20 suicide prevention walks including last year’s at Baker Lake raised over $800,000, far more than any other state.

Last year’s La Salle County walk raised over $6500.  This year’s walk is set for October 19th.
