Beatrice Hosting “Out of Darkness” Walk

Beatrice will host an Out of the Darkness Walk to prevent suicide Saturday at Chautauqua Park.

Walk registration will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Chautauqua Park in Beatrice with the walk beginning at 1 p.m.  Registration is free but donations are welcome.

Organizers hope to use the funds raised to bring awareness to the schools by educating high school and middle school students about depression and suicide with a movie called “More Than Sad.”

The walk will also have a guest speaker from Mourning Hope Grief Center. At the walk, participants will say a prayer and light a candle in remembrance. In addition there will be a silent auction and raffle with items that local businesses donated.
