Volunteers are being sought for the San Luis Obispo Out of the Darkness Community Walk in October that raises funds for suicide prevention services and research by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The walk will begin in Mission Plaza at 9 a.m. Oct. 10 and proceed through downtown. The nonprofit organization is looking for volunteers to set up and take down event equipment and register donors for the fundraiser.
Funds raised at the annual event, which is sponsored by local therapy provider Tidelands Counseling, will benefit AFSP’s research and education programs.
The event began nationally in 2004. The local walk is in its third year and has so far raised about $4,500 toward its $18,000 goal for this year.
