SUNY Delhi Hosting ‘Out of Darkness’ Walk Sunday
Kappa Sigma Epsilon, in partnership with SUNY Delhi and the Delaware County Suicide Prevention Network, is hosting its fourth annual "Out of the Darkness" Suicide Awareness and Prevention Walk on Sunday, October 2. Registration is at 1 p.m. at the lower parking lot. The walk begins at 2 p.m., proceeding into the Village of Delhi and back to campus.
Students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members will join together to make the event a success. Dollars raised are used for research and prevention efforts. The local community may also support one of the many campus teams participating in the walk.
As the leader in the fight against suicide, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) has set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20 percent by 2025. Activities like this walk allow the AFSP to raise awareness and funds to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.
