Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Greater Houston Area 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.

About the Walk

Enjoy the gorgeous, serene view on our 2 mile walk around the Woodlands Waterway, beginning and finishing at Town Green Park. It takes about 45 minutes for the average walker, and it is handicap accessible. Please look for volunteers stationed around the route if you are in need of any immediate health services or care. 


Leashed dogs are welcome, but please clean up after them! We will have doggie waste bags at the AFSP booth if you need them! Doggie treats and water will also be available.

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.


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!
