WALK ROUTE

The walk starts at the Gulfside Pavilion at Pensacola Beach located at 20 Casino Beach Boardwalk - Pensacola, FL 32561.  All activities will take place at the staging area.  The walk will take place on the beach.  It will be a 3 mile walk.  You will walk approximately 1.5 miles and turn around and walk back.  Feel free to walk as much, or as little as you want.  It is not a race or a competition.  You can also stay back at the Pavilion if you are unable to walk.  Please note that since this is a beach walk, it is not wheelchair/stroller friendly.  NO PETS ALLOWED.

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


 

Online registration closes at noon (local time) the Friday before the walk. However, anyone who would like to participate can register in person at the walk from the time check-in begins until the walk starts. Walk donations are accepted until December 31st.

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 AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.

As the leader in the fight against suicide, and thanks to walkers like you from cities across the country, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

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