Out of the Darkness Walk for Suicide Prevention and Awareness Sunday, October 2, 2016

Thank you for supporting our advisors who participated in the Out of the Darkness Walk for Suicide Prevention and Awareness in 2015.  We had 11 walkers and raised $425. 

Once again, the Bloomington Academic Advising Council is sponsoring a team to walk in the sixth Annual Bloomington Community Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention Walk, run under the auspices of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This year’s walk takes place on October 2 at 2:00, here on the IU Bloomington campus. You can join the team through the BAAC Walkers team page.  If you would just like to make a donation, you can do so by selecting one of the participants on the Roster and then clicking donate.

Each participant who raises $150 will get one of those fabulous t-shirts. Please consider joining us this year and/or supporting us in this fabulous cause!
