The road to awareness: Kitsap suicide prevention walk sheds light on tragic trend | Photo gallery

Three hundred and forty-six participants raised $35,599 at the recent Out of the Darkness suicide prevention awareness walk, which saw attendees from across the county lace up their walking shoes to shed light on a serious subject.

Many also donned homemade shirts bearing the names of specific friends and loved ones lost to suicide, in addition to the color-coded beads, which nearly every walker wore to signify who they were there to remember.

The Review’s own Luciano Marano hit the road as well, camera in hand, to cover the meaningful march.

His favorite shots are collected here.
