Gratitude in Every Step: A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Suicide Walk Attendees and Donors

Thank you to all IBEW Local 1900 brothers and sisters, Pepco employees, families, and friends who donated and attended the 16th Annual D.C. Out of the Darkness Walk to Prevent Suicide Walk.

Out of the Darkness is our opportunity to stand tall, overcome challenges, and send a message of hope and remembrance that resonates far beyond these streets. Whether you are personally struggling, know of someone around you facing this battle, or simply want to be part of the solution, know that there are organizations, hotlines, and professionals dedicated to providing support and guidance. Your life is valuable and there is help out there. With every stride, we shatter the stigma, and with every cheer, we let those who suffer in silence know they are not alone.

We walked not only for ourselves, but for countless others in need of support and understanding. Each step you took is not just a physical one; it is a stride towards a brighter future. Thank you for lacing up your shoes, embracing the journey, and together, let’s break through the darkness and illuminate the path to better mental health. 

 In Solidarity,
Jerry R. Williford Jr.
President, Business Manager, Financial Secretary
