The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's signature fundraiser, "Out of the Darkness" walks, are taking place throughout Connecticut during October, with four left to go, the last of which will be here in Brookfield.

"When you walk in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walks, you join efforts with thousands of people nationwide to raise money for AFSP’s vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives," the organization says. "The walks raise awareness about depression and suicide, and provide comfort and assistance to those who have lost someone to suicide."

Get Involved

Walks took pace in Bristol and Hamden last weekend but there will be four more in Connecticut in October. Here are the details:

I will be walking with my son on behalf of my husband, Michael, who died five years ago. If anyone cares to join us, just paste this link into your browser. http://afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=423261. It starts at 10:00 a.m. next Sunday, but get there by 9:00 if you want a t-shirt and to hear other people's stories. Thank you Gary and the Patch for shedding light on a difficult subject!
