Important Information About Parking:

Due to construction, the parking lot on Maple Ave. will not be available.  As an alternative, there is street parking available in the area surrounding the park.

We strongly recommend carpooling and arriving early to allow enough time to get to the park.  Please do not park in a "no parking" zone or in a business lot.

The entrance to Reverchon Park is near the intersection of Maple Ave. and Turtle Creek Blvd.

 

*Online registration closes at noon (local time) the Friday before the walk. However, anyone who would like to participate can register in person at the walk during the check-in times listed above. Walk donations are accepted until December 31st.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's (AFSP) signature fundraising campaign, bringing together family, friends, colleagues, and supporters at 3-5 mile walks in hundreds of communities across the country.

When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you join the effort with thousands of people to raise funds and awareness for AFSP's vision to create a world without suicide. 

Click the Register Now! button at the top of the page to get started right away.

New This Year:
Please Join us After the Walk for the
Celebration of Life Picnic

New this year, AFSP's North Texas Chapter invites you to stay after the Walk for the inaugural Celebration of Life Picnic.  This is an opportunity to meet and mingle with other walkers and participants, to cultivate bonds in our North Texas community.  Food and drinks will be provided.  Please bring a blanket to sit on, as this will be a true "picnic" format featuring speakers and entertainment.

Don't Forget to Bring:

-- A blanket: You are encouraged to bring a blanket for the Celebration of Life Picnic portion of the event.
-- A photo of your loved one: If you are walking to honor a loved one, you are invited to bring a photo (without a frame) to display on the Memory Wall at the event.  You may pick up your photo after the walk, but please do not bring anything irreplaceable as we will be outdoors and the elements are unpredictable.  Please note that this is optional.
-- Your furry friend(s): Dogs are welcome at the event!  Please remember to keep them leashed and clean up after them at all times.
-- On-site donations: If you have collected donations and need to turn them in on site, you'll be able to do so at the registration desk when you check in.  If you have multiple donations to turn in, please try to have a total amount counted when you arrive.
-- Cash or credit card: There will be plenty of AFSP merchandise for sale. Cash and credit cards (using a secure method) will be accepted.
