Every 16 minutes, someone in the U.S.A. commits suicide, making it the fourth-leading cause of death in this country. Such devastating statistics really emphasize how much need be done to aid suicide prevention. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will be leading a walk to prevent suicide in order to raise national awareness and money for research, benefit education regarding the issue, and to offer support to families who have experienced the suicide of a loved one. You can register for the walk online but can donate at the event as well. Time: 10 a.m. (sign-in), 11 a.m. (walk begins) Cost: Free though donations are welcome.
