THANKS TO OUT OF THE DARKNESS WALK PARTICIPANTS
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all involved in Kutztown University's Out of the Darkness Walk. Thank you to the KU walk committee members who supported the idea of a virtual walk. Special thanks to NAMI KU members, Dr. Crider and his students, Kathy Loomis and Dr. Kelli Deiaco. Thank you to each and every team member and individual donor. Seventy people attended our online ceremony and 165 participants from 18 teams donated funds and registered to walk. We raised $10,785 for The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention surpassing our $7,000 goal. I believe that we were able to spread a message of hope in these uncertain times. May peace and good health remain with all of you. #KutztownUhopewalkshere2020
