Dozens of people walked through White River State Park Saturday for the Out of the Darkness Walk. 

The event works to raise awareness and prevent suicide. 

Proceeds from the event go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to create educational programs and to support people who have had a loved one commit suicide.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20-percent by 2025.
