My 6th Overnight walk - this time in Washington, DC.
This has been a very difficult year for many people, especially those already marginalized by race, economic status, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting and hugging in person a lovely lady who I, with other online friends, was able to help through a very tough night, and someone who knew where she lived got police to send a wellness team who took her to the hospital. So glad she is still with us, and thriving.
Please support me as I honor the ones on the fringe, who are already suffering and see the future through a very dark lens, and my friends who struggle with mental illness.
The Out of the Darkness Overnight Experience is an 16-18 mile walk over the course of one night. Net proceeds benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, funding research, advocacy, survivor support, education, and awareness programs – both to prevent suicide and to assist those affected by suicide.
