The Office of Work, Life and Engagement supports the Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program and encourages everyone to support this year's American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness campus walk to raise awareness and money for suicide prevention.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 7. (Registration starts at 9:30 a.m.) The 3-plus-mile walk will start at the School of Nursing on the East Baltimore campus and go to Patterson Park and back.

Faculty, staff, students, families, and friends are invited to participate by walking and/or raising funds. By participating in the Johns Hopkins University Campus Walk, you will be walking with thousands of individuals to raise money for AFSP's important research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives.
