Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Little Rock 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.

Walk Route and Information

The walk route begins at the Clinton Presidential Center. We will travel west along the Little Rock side of the Arkansas River along the River Trail just past the amphitheater turning at the playground heading back east along the river. We'll continue behind the Clinton Library, past Heifer International back to the event venue. The long route is 1.6 miles and there will also be an option for a shorter route turning before the amphitheater. The entire trail is handicap accessible and stroller friendly. 

Food trucks will be on site. In order to cut down on plastic waste, please paln to bring your own water bottles. 

Parking will be available in the lot next to the venue and at the Heifer International parking lot. 


Leashed dogs are welcome! Be sure to stop by the AFSP store to get your pet bandanna.

Activities of Hope and Healing

Hope and healing activities include our memory beads and memory wall. Be sure to stop by the loss and healing tables to get your beads and create your memory square for the wall. Our Healing Conversations table will also have information about the program and how to schedule a visit.


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!
