The Sacramento Out of the Darkness Walk is planned and put on by Volunteers each year. If you would like to be a part of the planning commitee and help use your skills and passion to make this event even better, just let us know.
We've got great new incentives for early registration and team fundraising for all of our walk teams this year - with more to come as we move ahead through the walk season. Click here to check out the early-bird registration incentives and more.
Congratulations once again to team JPF for last year's incredible fundraising effort as ur Top Team in 2013!
The Top Team on the day prior to the walk (10/3/14) will carry the walk banner and lead the walk!
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!
The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a 3-5 mile scenic walk taking place in more than 300 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!
Volunteer with us on Walk Day and help us make the Sacramento Out of the Darkness Community Walk a success. Our walk is planned and managed by Volunteers just like you, and we would love to have your help on the day of the walk.
We'll have volunteers helping with everything from Event Set Up & Breakdown to Food and Beverage Stations, the Honor Bead Tent, Route Support, Prize Giveaways, and much more!
Email us if you are interested in helping with the walk or if you have any questions about Volunteering with us.
Our generous local sponsors help make our Sacramento Area Out of the Darkness Walks possible. Sponsoring a walk is a great way for local businesses to support their communities and to be more visible.
If you know a business owner or local company that might want to sponsor one of the Sacramento Area walks, email us, or send them the sponsor packet.
This year's Sacramento Out of the Darkness Community Walk will be held on the West Steps of the State Capitol once again. For driving directions, transit, and parking details, please see the map and links below.
