Youth MOVE Maine Walks with Out of the Darkness at UMaine

Youth MOVE Maine Walks with Out of the Darkness at UMaine

Samuel Chamberlain No Comment
​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).
