Out of the Darkness Walk

On April 14, 2017, CSI hosted their annual Out of the Darkness Campus Walk at University of Northern Iowa to raise funds and awareness for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). The walk raised a grand total of $24,022 to help the AFSP with research funding, educational programs, advocacy, and support to those affected by suicide.
