Edisto Beach residents are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, as water is finally starting to recede and this rainbow appeared.
A suicide prevention walk “Out of the Darkness” will be held Saturday Nov. 3 at the Colleton County Museum and Farmers Market.
Registration begins at noon with the walk from 1-3 p.m. On-line free registration ends at noon Friday Nov. 2 at afsp.org/colletonco. Walk-ins will be welcome the day of the walk. For information contact Kim Crouse, 843-908-9337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., but there is something we can do about it,” Crouse said. “Each year thousands of people participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s ‘Out of the Darkness’ community walks, raising awareness and letting people know they are not alone.”
Funds raised support research, education, advocacy and support for those affected by suicide.
Donations may be made on the website afsp.org/colletonco.
