Youth MOVE Maine Walks with Out of the Darkness at UMaine

Samuel Chamberlain No Comments

​On Sunday October 4th, YMM Bangor Region joined over 850 people at the University of Maine Campus in Orono to participate in the annual Out of the Darkness walk. The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about suicide and suicide prevention. The walk began with a ceremony where the stories of those who had lost loved ones, had struggled with suicide, or had been impacted by suicide. The powerful ceremony occurred on the mall outside of the Fogler Library on the UMaine Campus, the walk then proceeded through downtown Orono, and back to the University of Maine.​ The Walk Committee reported over 850 walkers, and over $27,000 was raised to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Youth MOVE Maine Walks with NAMI

On Sunday September 27 YMM Bangor Region traveled to Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse in South Portland to participate in the NAMI 2015 walk. NAMI stands for the National Alliance on Mental Illness and their mission is to help build better lives for people who suffer with mental illness and to help fight the stigma around mental illness. The walk was a 5k and it was an absolutely beautiful day. It started out with tables from sponsors to share information on their companies and how they help, along with coffee, donuts, raffles and some music. The walk was about an hour long and ended with a provided lunch and more music with a huge dancing crowd. It was a beautiful walk along the ocean and a great time had by all. We hope to see everyone there next year!
