Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Yates County 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.



Bottled water and snacks will be provided. You’ll also be able to take away your own honor beads, memory buttons, and have the opportunity to purchase AFSP merchandise to raise funds toward our walk total.


Parking available in the gravel lot on the corner of Lake Street and East Main Street, in the Napa Auto Parks parking lot across the street (only after 12 pm), and street parking on Main Street and other side streets near the walk location.
