Sunday Walk to Raise Awareness, Funds for Suicide Prevention

Contact: Joe Carr at (207) 581-3571

ORONO — A group of 200 University of Maine community members and others will walk to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention on Sunday, Sept. 27.  The 3.5 mile walk will begin at UMaine’s Fogler Library, at 1 p.m.

The UMaine event is part of the Out of the Darkness Community Walk, taking place in more than 200 communities across the U.S. this fall.  Proceeds will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  That organization funds programs in research, education and awareness, while also providing support to those affected by suicide.

More information, including methods for making a donation to support the UMaine event, are online here.
