Saturday evening's Penn College walk aimed at bringing the topic of suicide "Out of the Darkness" attracted 227 participants and raised $8,547 to fund local preventive efforts and awareness events. In partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, teams of bundled-up walkers – some paying tribute to friends and family members, others joining in support and solidarity – traversed campus in a 5K loop that began and ended at the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center. The highest overall individual fundraiser was Eileen Sodano, the highest community team fundraiser was "In Memory of Rhian," the highest fundraiser among campus teams was Penn College Welding and the highest among student organizations was Phi Mu Delta (members of which were stationed along the route to direct foot traffic). Donations will be accepted through Dec. 31. Photos by Tia G. La, student photographer
