Hilbert students and staff walked in support of suicide prevention this past Saturday, November 2. The walk was held through the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and consisted of two laps around the school. After the walk, all were welcomed to Fran Hall to talk about the topic of suicide. This event goes hand in hand with this year’s Hilbert Reads book, What Made Maddy Run, the heartbreaking story of college athlete Madison Holleran, whose life and death by suicide reveal the struggle of young people suffering from mental illness today.
