Lauren Elder, Bobby Cronin Set for Suicide Prevention Walk
HAIR's Lauren Elder will perform in the opening ceremony of the Out of the Darkness Community Walk for AFSP, with MARVELOUS WONDERETTE's Tricia Tanguy and Bobby Cronin on backup vocals, singing an original song by Bobby Cronin.
The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are 3-5 mile walks taking place in over 200 communities across the country this year, with the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). By walking in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you will be walking with thousands of other walkers nationwide to raise money for AFSP's vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide and provide support for survivors of suicide loss. In deciding to walk you are taking us a step closer to making suicide prevention a national priority.
Elder, Cronin and Tanguy will be walking with the W2ML (Welcome to My Life) team. You can join their team or donate to the organization by going to:
