Patriot Out of the Darkness Walk

On Tuesday, September 15, Pike Liberal Arts SGA will host an "Out of the Darkness Walk" to bring attention to the fight against suicide.  As you know, the Troy community has been impacted by suicide the last two years in various age groups.  Suicide prevention starts with everyday heroes like you.  You may raise money to turn in, give a donation, or just walk for the cause.  The money raised will go for critical research and prevention programs and help bring some training to our community.  Please come and be a part of this worthy cause.  It would be an excellent opportunity to come and walk with your child(ren).  We look forward to seeing you there.
