Danielle Neil, TRIAD Graphic Designer is continuing to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) again this year by participating in the Columbus Out of the Darkness Community Walk. Danielle and her friends traveled New York City in 2008 to walk in the 20-mile Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk. This year, they will be participating in a 5-mile walk at Fred Beekman Park in Columbus on October 25th.
The goal of the walks is to raise funds for suicide prevention, erase the stigma surrounding suicide and its causes, to encourage those suffering from mental illness to seek treatment, and to show support for the families and friends of the 30,000 Americans who die by suicide and the 20 million people that suffer from depression each year. The net proceeds will support the AFSP’s programs and mission.
