About the Team

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's Out of the Darkness Community Walks help raise awareness of suicide by allowing suicide survivors and their friends and family to walk in memory of their loved one.  Our AFSP Race Team members do the same by training and racing in jerseys with photos of our lost loved ones imprinted on the back, thus reminding us why we are racing and letting others know that we wish to remove the stigma of suicide.  As a team member you will be part of a network of athletes committed to bringing suicide out of the darkness and remembering our loved ones while we strive to achieve personal milestones.


  1. Custom race jersey with your choice of images and text so you can honor your loved one as you train and race.
  2. On-line fundraising page with credit card support.
  3. Fundraising tips and training suggestions.

Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Runners will be able to obtain a guaranteed entry to the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon by committing to raise $1,000 for one of the official charities of the Chicago Marathon.  AFSP has been an official charity of the Chicago Marathon since 2010 and expects to be one again this year.  We will update this page with the details for 2016 registration as soon as they are available.  Please contact Team Captain Steve Moore for more information.

Chicago Marathon Time Qualifiers, Legacy Runners, Drawing Winners

If you are able to register for the Chicago Marathon on your own because you meet their time requirement (3:15 male, 3:45 female), have run more than 5 Chicago Marathons in the past 10 years or if you win the drawing, then you can join our team by committing to raise $500 for AFSP.  Please contact Team Captain Steve Moore for more information.

All Other Races 

You don't need to race in the Chicago Marathon to be a member of the AFSP Race Team.  We welcome runners, triathletes, cyclists, or anyone wishing to combine their athletic interest with fundraising for AFSP.  You can compete in any type of race, at any distance, anywhere in the world.  All we ask is that you commit to raising $500 for AFSP. Please contact Team Captain Steve Moore for more information.
