About the Team
The Mission of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide, through research, education, advocacy and support.
AFSP's Out of the Darkness Community Walks help raise awareness of suicide by allowing those that have lost a loved one to suicide and those that are struggling with suicidal thoughts themselves, along with their friends and family, to walk together as a community dedicated to helping each other and bring suicide "out of the darkness." Our AFSP Race Team members do the same by training and racing in AFSP jerseys that remind 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.

Please contact Team Captain Steve Moore before you register for our team.
