Walk raises nearly $20,000 for mental health

  • May 14, 2019 -- Earlier this month, students from Mounds View High School’s National Honor Society organized Out of the Darkness – a fund-raising walk in partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). The goal of the walk was to support those affected by mental illnesses.

    More than 300 community members participated in the walk at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton, raising nearly $20,000 (against an original goal of $5,000). The event was supported by several local sponsors, and it featured performances by the Mounds View High School Concert Choir and individual student performers.

    Online donations remain accepted until June 30 here.
