I’m doing something incredible. I am participating in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk - an extraordinary event where participants from all over the country join together to walk 16-18 miles over the course of one night.      

I’m fundraising to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Net proceeds will help those affected by suicide and mental health conditions by supporting research, advocacy, survivor resources, education, and awareness programs. AFSP has set a bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by the year 2025, and I'm proud to be part of that mission.

I have been involved with the AFSP since 2001 when I participated in their  first Out of the Darkness Overnight with my dear friend who lost her sister to suicide.  I have walked in 2 others since then and was on medical crew for one.  I am excited to be joining my daughter, who works in the mental health field, on this walk to continue to raise awareness.  As a nurse, I see the need for more mental health help & awareness for suicide prevention. 

Thank you for your support in a cause I believe in. Together we can save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
