Chatham “Out of the Darkness Walk” Raises $65,000 for Suicide Prevention
CHATHAM, NJ – The overcast skies couldn’t stop the bright light of awareness that shone through on Saturday when the first “Out of the Darkness” Community Walk was held behind Chatham High School.
People came from as far away as Virginia to raise more than $65,000 and remember lost friends and relatives who are no longer here because of suicide, an issue participants say needs to be brought to light.
The goal stated by Meredith Henning of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is to reduce suicides by at least 20 percent by the year 2025.
