Hundreds show up to annual Out of the Darkness walk in Washington City

WASHINGTON CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) - Hundreds of people showed up to help support others and bring education and awareness of suicide during the annual Out of the Darkness Walk in Washington City Saturday morning. 

Held at Highland Park, the walk brought people of all ages out to support the cause. A cause that affects everyone. 

Taryn Hiatt, coordinator of the event, said the walk is meant to bring people together who have been affected by suicide. 

"Where we can come together and talk about it openly, support each other. Get the stigma that surrounds suicide and mental health gone," Hiatt said. "You know we can talk about it in coming out of the darkness. It's been in the shadows too long."

September was National Suicide Prevention Month and this weekends walk near St. George helped raise $20,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
