NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - On Sunday, the North Platte Suicide Prevention Coalition partnered with the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention in Nebraska to host the Out of Darkness experience in Cody Park.

People walked to raise awareness about suicide prevention and how their lives had been touched by suicide. The goal of the event was to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.

The Out of the Darkness walk focused on educating the community and providing support for people who have lost loved ones, or with personal experiences. The walk was a step towards erasing the stigma surrounding suicide.
