The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope and support. It is a walk that unites our community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. As the leader in the fight against suicide, and thanks to walkers like you from communities across the country, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

*Paypal and major credit cards accepted at walk!*
