LANE in the Community: Walk to Prevent Suicide

Posted by: AmberRoberts in: Consumer Lifestyle -

It’s safe to say we’ve all been deeply saddened by the recent incidents of cyberbullying that have led to teen and young adult suicide.  This seemingly sudden increase in suicide by today’s youth, coupled with the rising suicide rates among the currently serving, returning and retired military community, has many wondering what we can do to help prevent these unnecessary tragedies.

On Sunday, October 24th I will join hundreds of New Yorkers to take a stand against suicide by participating in a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and through Manhattan. This fall, AFSP (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention) is holding community walks throughout the country in an effort to:  educate the public on suicide, provide resources for those who want to be involved in prevention, and raise important funds for suicide research.

If you are in the New York City area on October 24th, you can walk (for free) and be part of this movement to prevent suicide. To sign up for the walk: http://afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.eventDetails&eventID=1093&destination=E
