Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Finger Lakes Walk

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.

Registration opens at 11am. We will be distributing honor beads and have a Wall of Hope memory activity, refreshments available for purchase from Cobblestone Coffee Roasters & Martin’s Smokehouse BBQ, and resource tables representing: Family Counseling of the Finger Lakes, the Tristan Foundation, Safe Harbors of the Finger Lakes, Cayuga Seneca Community Action Agency, Fatherhood Connections, and the VA Crisis Line. 1pm starts our Opening Remarks and Honor Bead Ceremony, and then we launch our walk, which is approximately 2 miles in length.
