Send your loved one's photo for our "Why We Walk" photo board.

Every year, at our AFSP Out of the Darkness Walk, we have photographs of our loved ones on display. If you would like to have a photograph of your loved one at this year’s walk, please email a photo and put "Walk Photo" in the subject line, and include in the body of the email the person's name, and any brief message you'd like displayed with the photo to:  suepowderly@sbcglobal.net.

Photo file type should be jpeg and a high enough resolution that it can be enlarged to 8x10 without getting grainy. If you would like, you can send more than one photo, and a collage can be created. Because of space limitations, each specific loved one will have only one poster/collage.

Lifekeeper Memory Quilts: You will have the opportunity at the walk to have your loved one’s photo/poster made into a permanent fabric square on our memory quilt. For a $5.00 fee to offset the costs, you can reserve a spot on our next quilt for your loved one and all the work will be done for you. For more info on our quilt program: http://afsp.org/lifekeeper-memory-quilts/

I still have the electronic files of previous years' walk photos, so if you walked in the past and would like me to use the same photo, just please send an email letting me know that.

When you send your photo, you will receive a reply from me stating that I received it. If you don't receive a reply within 3 days, please resend.

Thanks,
Sue Powderly

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 the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.

Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

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

Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you at the walk!
