Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Southern Oregon 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.

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.

There is an honor bead for everyone, whether you have lost a loved one, struggle personally, support a friend and/or family member, or all of the above.

Banner of Hope

Sign our Banner of Hope with encouraging messages to loved ones. We hang previous years’ banners around the event and continue to share memories with our community.

 

Kids' Corner:

Family friendly event! We have temporary tattoos, face-painting, lemonade/snacks and a playground!

Resource Fair

Local organizations gather together at our event to share resources and programs that are available in the Rogue Valley for mental health and survivor support.

Walk with a Veteran

Pin a Veteran to your back for the duration of the walk, to carry and support the struggle of those who lost their fight with PTSD. Support and respect our service members with this honor.

Paws for Prevention

Friendly, leashed dogs are always welcome to accompany family to our events!

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, support, and a walk that unites a campus and community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones.

 

 

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