Austin has the highest suicide rate of all major cities in Texas.

To bring awareness to the issue, hundreds of people marched in the capital city Sunday.

The Central Texas chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention hosted the event starting at the south steps of the Texas capitol.

Money raised from the walk will go toward national research to help answer questions about suicide rates, especially in major metropolitan areas.
