RECENT NEWS!AU/SLO Walks to Prevent Suicide
Oct 10, 2015
Team AU/SLO walked in the “Out of the Darkness” Community walk in downtown San Luis Obispo this morning with 1000s of other people nationwide to help raise money and awareness for the American Foundation for Suicide (AFSP) raising $285.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 39,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work there urgent.
Donations through this year are still being accepted at their website.
Thanks team for getting your monkey shoes on and walking for an important cause!
