Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Reno/Sparks 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.


The walk will take place around the Sparks Marina Pathway. The route is under construction this year so we have a small detour. 


You are welcome to bring your pets if they are on a leash and you clean up any pet waste and dispose of it properly.


Download the Reno/Sparks Walk SPONSORSHIP PACKET. With sponsorship opportunities starting at only $250, this is a perfect opportunity for large and small businesses to play a role in making suicide prevention a priority in the community. All sponsors will receive marketing and publicity benefits!
