Out of the Darkness Walks 

Many people first learn about the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's (AFSP) lifesaving work through our walks. In the beginning, only a few came out to walk against suicide, but they were the grassroots spark that started a movement that gains momentum each year.

Connect With Others and Save Lives
As the core of the Out of the Darkness Walks, the Community Walks are proof that when people work together, they can make big changes in our world. Taking place in hundreds of cities each fall, these walks raise awareness for our important cause as they raise the resources we need to carry out our mission.
