Today on DelmarvaLife:
The Out of the Darkness walk in Dorchester County is Sunday, Sept. 18 at the pavilion of the Dorcester county train station. Check in is at 2 pm and the walk takes place from 3 pm-4 pm. The mission for this walk is to raise awareness and funds to prevent suicide.
Suicide is something we simply want to stop. Kids, teens, young adults, older adults – suicide impacts everyone. Our soldiers and veterans are also being affected by this. Studies shoe nearly 22 veterans commit suicide every single day. There’s an effort underway to raise awareness and to support our country’s heroes, so we do not lose another one to suicide. Dave Strawbridge is the Director of Military and Veteran Services at Delaware Technical Community College, but he’s also so much more than that. Dave is also an Air Force Reservist of 30 years. He is a twice-deployed veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, having spent time in Yemen in 2003 and Afghanistan in 2013. We thank him for his service and he joins us to tell us more about the campaign, “22 in 22.” The campaign raises awareness and funds to prevent veteran suicide. To be a part of this campaign, you can run, walk, skip, or jump 22 miles in 22 days or do 22 push-ups for 22 days. We want to see your videos Delmarva! Share your videos of “22 in 22” on our Facebook page.
Chris Demone and his son Elliot took on the challenge. They join us in the studio today along with Corey Phoebus with WBOC’s 102.5 to perform 22 push-ups in the DelmarvaLife studio.

The foundation promotes the programs and activities of the college and provides assistance with funding for scholarships, equipment, programs, professional development, facilities and other areas of need identified by the college’s board of trustees.
Maybe you’ve heard of the hashtag #FOMO — fear of missing out. Many teens today are afraid they are going to miss out on the fun, an opportunity, the party, making friends, whatever it may be. We learn about a new hashtag on the show today, #MUMO — mess up, miss out. It’s the message that Somerset County Health Department is working to share with local teens and parents. Jalissa Worthy from the Somerset County Health Dept., joins us to tell us more about the new MUMO app.
Scott Bloodsworth joins us in the studio to talk about the podcast, “Live at Scooter’s.” Scott is the host of this podcast which is every Tuesday night at 7 pm. Scott features local talent on Delmarva in his podcast.
Hope you enjoy the show!
