When you walk in the Out of the Darkness 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 cities across the country, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

MESSAGES OF HOPE:
We want to spread the message that it is possible to overcome suicidal thoughts and feelings and that there are many resources available to help those who are struggling to cope. We will have a special area at this year's event for walkers to create a "message of hope" for themselves, someone they know, or just to provide strength to someone who might be struggling. Help us create a "community of caring" by letting each other know that anyone can experience suicidal thoughts but there is help, and there is hope.
If you are a survivor of suicide loss, we encourage you to bring a non-returnable photo of your loved one to the Walk to add to our Remembrance Tent.
AFSP's Remembrance Tent is an opportunity for Walkers to share special photos and written memories of their loved one with others, or to simply pause for a quiet moment of reflection.
Please remember to pick up your Honor Beads and "I Walk For" labels at the Walk to acknowledge your personal connection to the cause and help you to
Be sure to stop by the silent auction tent to bid on great prizes. (more info on prizes coming soon)
