Out Of The Darkness Dodge County Walk Planned Saturday At Fairgrounds

(Beaver Dam) A suicide prevention walk is planned Saturday at the Dodge County Fairgrounds. Out of the Darkness Dodge County Walk aims to raise awareness, mitigate risks, and support the mental health of the community around us. People who cannot make the walk can donate to the cause. Karen Gibbs with Church Health Services says so far over $13-thousand-dollars of their $16-thousand-dollar goal has been raised and donations can be made through the end of the year. She says there will be organizations on-hand at the walk to help answer questions and provide information. Those groups include Church Health Services, PAVE, 5-Stones Dodge County, and Journey to the Light, among others. Those interested in going can register online ahead of time or at the event. Gibson says registration starts at 9am with a kickoff at 10am. She says the walk will go until noon. There is no cost to register. More information can be found at: https://supporting.afsp.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=7875
