Sacramento State Campus Walk

Join us on April 6, 2017

Donate To This Event

Thanks to all of our walkers, donors, and volunteers, we have already surpassed our original goal for this year's walk with a month to go until walk day! Help us make this the biggest walk yet!


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.
