American Federation for Suicide Prevention – Rockland County Out of the Darkness WalkAll Events
September 17, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. Thanks to Walkers and Donors, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
The JHMF sent Team Jimmy to this year’s walk to help support efforts and increase awareness. Activities included several guest speakers, reciting of the names of loved ones lost followed by a balloon release and ending with a 3 mile walk around Rockland Lake. Thanks to Holly McMahon, RC Walk Chair, for all her hard work!
