This past Saturday (October 26), NRCI and TCS brought a team of walkers to the Out of the Darkness Walk, hosted by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  This great event, designed to raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention education, research, and advocacy, garnered over 3,000 participants from the Chicagoland area alone and raised over $555,000.00.
For our part, we had 28 participants for our first time joining this walk and creating a team.  On top of that, we were able to surpass our initial team fundraising goal of $1,000.00!  By Saturday, our team had raised $2,610.00 for the walk.
We’d like to thank all those that supported us in this endeavor, including TCSPP faculty and staff, who donated through our “jeans day Wednesday” last week!
