“Doing events like this hopefully spreads awareness that people do care and a lot of us know what you’re going through, and we’re here for you, you know,” said participant Kyle Duran. The event also helped raise money for the local Agora Crisis Center, which provides a trained crisis hotline for those in need. The awareness walk kicks off suicide awareness week at UNM.
