An unforgettable day on September 9th in Glenwood Spring, CO, left an indelible mark on our community. This event was more than a fundraiser – it was a powerful display of our community's values and unwavering commitment to preventing suicide, an urgency that requires keen awareness and concerted effort.

A colossal shoutout to every participant, including Travis Wilson, YouthZone's Client Service Specialist. We also want to recognize the event organizers The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, a leading champion in the fight against suicide. The Walk Out of Darkness Wester Slopes Walk was a testament to the transformative power of collaboration, compassion and unity.

Whether you participated in the walk, made a monetary donation, or offered your valuable time to volunteer, you didn't just merely attend an event. You made a bold stand against suicide while advocating for hope, support, and vital change.
