Saturday, June 4 The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention hosts two overnight walks per year. The goal of these Out of the Darkness Walks are to raise money to research, educate, and advocate for public policy based around suicide prevention, while supporting survivors of suicide loss. Those who walk are contributing to AFSP’s goal of reducing the annual suicide rate 20% by the year 2025.
Wendy Monterosso, a Senior Hydrogeologist at Roux’s New York office, is proudly participating in the New York City Out of the Darkness Walk. To donate to her cause, click here.
The New York City walk is 16-18 miles, lasts from dusk until dawn, and takes walkers through the historic sites of the city, including Greenwich Village, the Brooklyn Bridge, Union Square, and many more. Click here to learn more about the walk and organization behind it.
