As always, we will have a raffle drawing with great prizes from local businesses, Community Partners from the Greater Sacramento Area, Chapter representatives to help fill you in on everything AFSP is doing in our communities, refreshments, and much more!
We will also have the Show of Remembrance that has become a well received remembrance activity and one that so many participants look forward to. Please click here for all the details about this year’s Show of Remembrance.
AFSP is almost entirely volunteer driven, and we could not put on this great event each year without help from supporters just like you. If you’d like to help us plan or put together any part of the walk, or even volunteer to help out on the day of the event itself, we’d love to have you. Contact the Walk Committee at email@example.com for details.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a 3-5 mile scenic walk taking place in more than 200 communities across the country this fall. Proceeds will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, to fund research, education, survivor and awareness programs — both to prevent suicide and to assist those affected by suicide.
The Walk begins and ends at the State Capitol west steps and we will have details and route specifics posted soon.
Dogs are welcome at the Walk. People and canine friendly ones only please & please clean up after your dog!
Walkers are encouraged to carpool to the event, ride light rail, or take a bus. Parking lots and meters are available for a fee.
