American Foundation for Suicide Prevention 2018

Why We Walk

Each year, suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. Yet suicide prevention doesn't receive anywhere near the funding as other leading causes of death. It's up to Walkers like us to make a difference. Together we can change the conversation about mental health and put a stop to this tragic loss of life.

We want Hueytown High School to be well represented in the Out of Darkness Walk on November 4th at 1 pm at Veterans Park. Please see details below. If you are interested, please stop by and see Ms. King.

We are also raising money for this cause, please sign-up and donate via the provided link. To donate, please go to and search Hueytown High School 2018, or you can go to the Hueytown website and click the provided link. Funds are used for suicide prevention research. We have a current goal to donate $200 toward this cause. I know that we can do it! So, let's Go Gophers!
