The Out of the Darkness Broome/Tioga County Walk, which is put together by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, is coming up. This walk is a great way for our community to come together and support those affected by suicide.

It's a day to make a positive impact and promote suicide prevention, so save the date, September 29th, 2024. The walk is at Mirabito Stadium in downtown Binghamton and is the perfect place to walk together. It's a walk to bring hope and healing to those who need it most.

Registration at Mirabito Stadium begins at 9 a.m. with the program kicking off at 10:30 a.m. Suicide is a serious topic and this is about coming together and supporting one another. It's also a chance to create awareness, raise money, and show our solidarity in the fight against suicide.
