Out of the Darkness Campus Walk a HUGE SUCCESS

Saint Thomas More Academy hosted the first AFSP Out of the Darkness Campus Walk in the state of Delaware on Sunday, April 24th.  We are very proud to announce that the walk was a huge success and we are looking forward to a bigger and better event in 2017!

87 walkers and runners participated in the event and raised over $3,000 to support suicide awareness and prevention.  A team of sixteen student and staff volunteers planned the event along with event coordinator Kathy Spencer.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention funds research, creates educational programs, advocates for public policy, and supports survivors of suicide loss.  AFSP has set a goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.
