Let's acknowledge the
elephant pandemic in the room. COVID-19 has changed everything. So while we won't be walking in person this year, the fight against suicide remains. In fact, because of COVID and the quarantine, mental health awareness is even more important. Saturday, we join the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and our friends from Leidos in a virtual Out Of The Darkness Walk.
There are a few ways you can help raise money and/or awareness in this fight.
- You can join Team One More Light and raise money for suicide prevention research, suicide prevention programs in your community and schools, and support for suicide survivors, and family and friends of those affected by suicide
- You can join Team One More Light and walk virtually on Saturday. By pledging to walk, you are raising awareness about the fight to #StopSuicide
- You can donate to Team One More Light. Our friends at Leidos have pledged $30,000 to our team which is amazing. What's also amazing? Any money you can spare to donate. One dollar from you will make a difference.
- You can purchase a Team One More Light t-shirt from the DC101 Merch Store. Not only is it a snazzy shirt that you'll look good wearing, but a portion of the proceeds will go to Team One More Light.
No matter which way you choose, know that your support is appreciated, especially during these times where so many other things are on our minds.
We thank you.
