Posts Tagged ‘Out of Darkness: The Walk to Prevent Suicide’

This past Sunday (October 24), I participated in “Out of Darkness: The Walk To Prevent Suicide,” walking with “The Beaten Path” team. Along with 800 other walkers, we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and back to Manhattan. Our team raised over $1900 and the walk itself raised over $125,000 with no corporate sponsorships. All of that money was raised by the participants!

It was truly a day of coming together and getting the word out about how suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participant Bobby Cronin performed two songs (“Daybreak” sung by the amazing Ray Lee and “The Best Is Yet To Come” sung by the equally amazing and upcoming participant Jenn Furman). Both songs of hope were the perfect fit and both Ray and Jenn really hit the mark!

It’s not too late to help support this great cause…donations are being accepted until December 31. Please give what you can…

This Sunday, October 24, 2010, I will be participating in “Out of Darkness: The Walk for Suicide Prevention.” Donations are being accepted until December 31, 2010!

Suicide affects many people, including me. In years past, I’ve had suicidal thoughts like others where I felt there was no way out of the darkness. Luckily, with help, I found my way out, and am here today to say things do get better. Suicide is a permanent fix to a temporary problem.

Today I walk for myself, for my friends who tried to commit suicide, and for those GLBT youth who have taken their life because they felt they had no where to turn.

I will be walking with “The Beaten Path” team. “The Beaten Path” (now called “Welcome To My Life”) is a musical in development by fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participant Bobby Cronin about the struggles kids go through and show them there is light at the end of the darkness.

Remember: Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem! Things will get better!

Please give what you can. No amount is too small and no amount is too big. Thank you for your support!
