Emily Morrow, a 2012 Chattahoochee High School
graduate and current sophomore at Georgia Southern University, is helping to
organize the Out of the Darkness Campus Walk at Georgia Southern Saturday,
Sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Campus Walks are 3- to 5-mile walks taking place in communities across the country, with proceeds benefitting the AFSP.
“Since losing my roommate a year ago," Morrow said, "I have been actively involved with organizing this event to increase suicide awareness among the Georgia Southern and Statesboro communities. We have established Standing Together Against Nationwide Depression (STAND) to promote suicide awareness.”
Everyone participating in Georgia Southern's Campus Walk will be joining thousands of students nationwide who will be raising money for AFSP's research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase awareness about depression and suicide and provide support for survivors of suicide loss.
To participate or contribute to others walking, go to http:/afsp.donordrive.com, select “Out of the Darkness Campus Walks,” in the far right column go to “GA Southern Walk” and select either the register or donate option.
