Out of the Darkness Walk Saturday

MARQUETTE — The annual Marquette County Out of the Darkness Community Walk will be held Saturday at Al Quaal Recreation Area in Ishpeming.

It is hosted by the Marquette County Suicide Prevention Alliance.

Registration begins at 9 a.m., with activities starting at 10 a.m.

The proceeds support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s local and national education and advocacy programs and its bold goal to reduce the annual rate of suicide by 20 percent by 2025.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

The event will feature speaker Steve Windom, director of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Michigan area.

Building on previous events, the community will again have the chance to add to the “community scrapbook” that the alliance houses. The scrapbook features pages of pictures, poems or stories from loss survivors and others.
