SU hosts Out of the Darkness Walk

SU field oversight

Shenandoah University is partnering with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to host the Out of the Darkness Walk.

The Walks take place at schools around the country and are designed to engage students in the fight to prevent suicide and raise money for the cause.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for people ages 15-24.

SU has risen to the occasion so far by nearly doubling their original goal.

Help them keep the momentum by donating or joining a team before the start of the opening ceremonies at 10 am.
