‘STOP SUICIDE’–That was the chant from about 70 people who came to walk Saturday at the Tiger Field track in an effort to stop suicide in Rockdale. Members of “Team Benj & Justin’s Crew” hold a banner in rememberance of RHS students Benjamin Pelzel and Justin Bailey, both dying by suicide in recent months. The team raised $2,000 for suicide prevention efforts and had walked in Austin’s American Foundation for Suicide Prevention “Out of the Darkness” walk earlier in the day, team organizer Kelli Pelzel said. Organizers are trying to put together an “Out of the Darkness” suicide prevention event in Rockdale this spring. 003p1.jpg
