Walk Details & Activities:

The 2017 Community Walk will be another great event and we are looking forward to growing it again this fall. Encourage others to walk with us to fight suicide. Registration is free!

We are excited to once again be at Railead Park this fall and have a great program of speakers lined up. Registration opens at 9:00am, and the walk program will begin at 10:00am.

There is a map below to get to the site, and we will have new merchandise available at the walk as well.

Our Route:

Our walk route will be approximately 3 miles over level surfaces that is very accessible to all of our walkers. We will begin and end at Railhead Park. If you would like to walk only part of the walk route, you will be able to turn back at any point, and we will have event volunteers along the way to help with questions.

Remembrance Activities:

Honor Beads will be available to all participants and you are welcome and encouraged to take beads to wear on the day of the walk. If you would like to know more about the Honor Beads, click here to find out what they signify.

 

 

Volunteer With Us on Walk Day:

Volunteer with us on Walk Day and help us make the Auburn Out of the Darkness Community Walk a success. Our walk is planned and managed by Volunteers just like you, and we would love to have your help on the day of the walk. 

We'll have volunteers helping with everything from Event Set Up & Breakdown to Food and Beverage Stations, the Honor Bead Tent, Route Support, Prize Giveaways, and much more!

Email us if you are interested in helping with the walk or if you have any questions about Volunteering with us.
