Dear Friend and Community Leader,
You can be an everyday hero in the fight against suicide.
Partner with us as an event sponsor for the annual Towson Out of the Darkness Walk.
Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for ages 10 to 35 in Maryland and every suicide affects at least 100 people in your community. However, suicide is preventable. With your support, we’ll be one step closer to achieving our bold goal of reducing the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
Sponsor the Towson Out of the Darkness Campus Walk and show our community that you’re a voice for suicide prevention.
Funds raised from The Out of the Darkness Walks allow us to fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.
We look forward to discussing our 2019 sponsorship opportunities and benefits with you in more detail. Download the sponsorship form HERE.
Encourage everyone you know to REGISTER, DONATE, and JOIN the movement to save lives!

Remember, in addition to fundraising online, you will be able to turn in additional cash or check donations at the registration table the day of the Walk.
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.
The Out of the Darkness Campus 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.
Online registration closes at noon 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 June 30th.
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.
