Event Description:

Every life matters, which is why you should join PTK for the Out of the Darkness Bergen County Walk to spread awareness about suicide prevention. Just a couple years ago according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, there were 47, 173 Americans who passed away from suicide in 2017. This event was created as an effort to raise awareness and funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) in order “invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss (AFSP).” If you would like to learn more about the organization AFSP click here. PTK will be joining Bergen Community College’s Pride Club. The link to register on the team will be provided in an email.
