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.

LOGISTICS & WALK ROUTE

We have moved our Warner Robins walk to the lovely Tattnall Park in Macon this year.  There is no entry fee and no minimum donation but all we do in Georgia comes from funds raised right here.

The walk is all on paved areas and the route is being decided - it will be between 1.5 - 2.5 miles long.  There is much free parking around the park so arrive early and grab your space.  Friendly leashed dogs and children in strollers welcome.  The walk is RAIN OR SHINE.

HELP SPREAD THE WORD!

We will have a walk flyer available for download by mid-February.  We need people to join our walk planning committee, please email or call Chris (cowens@afsp.org. 770-843-3826). Please help promote the event through your social media outlets! #OutoftheDarkness
