Anti-suicide walk Saturday at Tiger Field
A group of Rockdale students have organized a suicide prevention walk from 5 to 6 p.m. Saturday at Tiger Field, according to spokesperson Brenda Santellano.
RHS has had two students, Benjamin Pelzel and Justin Bailey, commit suicide in the last four months.
Because of those tragedies, local residents have taken interest in the “Out of the Darkness” walk in Austin, sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Teams from Rockdale will be walking and rasing funds for the Austin walk that morning, then returning to Rockdale for the walk at 5 p.m. Saturday, Santellano said.
“You don’t have to pay anything to walk Saturday. It is just to come out and support the Rockdale kids,’ she said.
