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

ACTIVITIES OF HOPE AND HEALING

HONOR BEADS:

Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through. Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance and a walk that unites a community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. We all wear honor beads - each color shows our personal connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience

WHITE - LOST A CHILD 

RED -  LOST A SPOUSE OR PARTNER 

GOLD - LOST A PARENT 

ORANGE - LOST A SIBLING 

PURPLE - LOST A RELATIVE OR FRIEND 

SILVER -  LOST FIRST RESPONDER / MILITARY

GREEN - STRUGGLED PERSONALLY

BLUE - SUPPORT THE CAUSE

TEAL - FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF SOMEONE WHO STRUGGLES

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