4th Annual Darkness into Vineyard Light Suicide Prevention & Awareness Walk

LowerWe are excited to announce that we will be hosting our 4th Annual Darkness into Vineyard Light Suicide Prevention and Awareness walk on Saturday September 25, 2021.  (Rain date September 26th.) The walk will begin before sunrise and continue until after day break. This is symbolic of coming out of the darkness of depression and mental illness, into the light of hope and healing.

Suicide rates have dramatically increased nation-wide. The suicide rate on the Cape and Islands is more than twice the state average, and suicide is now the second leading cause of death for youth ages 14-25. With this heart wrenching statistic in mind, we decided that this year any funds raised through this event will go directly to Martha’s Vineyard Youth Task Force to fund programs and events for the youth and teens in our community.
