Dear editor:

The Inaugural Khyla N. Dennis Memorial Foundation 5K Fun Run kicked off on Saturday, Oct. 13, after Hinesville Mayor Allen Brown signed a proclamation recognizing the week of Oct. 8-12, as Suicide Prevention Awareness Week. 

More than 200 people participated in the 5K Walk/ Run. 

Khyla N. Dennis, the teenage daughter of Charles and Pamela Dennis, committed suicide on Oct. 10, 2017. The Dennis family hopes to bring awareness that will help bring an end to suicide. All funds donated will go to the Khyla N. Dennis Memorial Foundation. 

The Liberty County Minority Chamber assisted with the event. To learn more, please go to
