Walk for suicide awareness Sunday in Omaha

The ninth annual Out of the Darkness Walk is Sunday in downtown Omaha.

The event is sponsored by the local chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Someone attempts suicide every minute of every day, according to the AFSP. The walk is the organization's fundraiser for research and education programs.

The Omaha event has raised more than $38,000. It starts at 2 p.m. at Miller's Landing downtown. Food and drinks will be available for sale after the walk. There will also be raffle tickets for purchase to win prizes.

Online registration closes Friday at noon. People can sign up in person the day of the event starting at noon.

There is no fee, but donations are encouraged.
