March held for awareness for suicide prevention

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Hundreds of people marched in Howard Park to raise awareness for suicide prevention.

The walk was put on by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention with a goal of raising $10,000.

Walkers say 38,000 people took their own lives last year.

"So many people out there have stories to tell, and I think there's a stigma around it, and we're trying to silence that stigma," said event coordinator Kelsey Martin.

Organizers are hoping the walks become an annual event.
