Last year I had the honor of participating in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walk in Denver, and I am very pleased to announce that this year I will be participating again!
According to the AFSP, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. On average, there are 121 suicides committed each day. And these are just a few unbelievably heartbreaking statistics.
Now I will personally admit that I have had an ongoing battle with depression and anxiety and struggled with thoughts of suicide for years, and this is why this is such an important issue that is near and dear to my heart.
The story of IN 27 DAYS deals with the heavy issues of suicide and mental health, things that are often wrongfully ignored in today’s society. Taboo topics such as these need to become a normal part of today’s dialogue, and that is why I’m so happy to be apart of AFSP’s Out of the Darkness walk – and you should too!
Please click on the link below to be taken to team IN 27 DAYS’ fundraising page to find out more about the AFSP’s Out of the Darkness walk and how you can support this important cause! And, if you feel so inclined, maybe leave a donation as well! Any little bit helps, really!
Lots of love,
