The Las Vegas Walk is still happening virtually, so you can continue to raise awareness & funds while asking others to join you as a Virtual Walker.
Join us on Saturday, April 4th at 10:00 AM for a virtual walk opening ceremony that will stream via Facebook Live. Tune in to hear and see our speakers share their stories via video conferencing or phone. Immediately following the opening ceremony, we ask that you do your own walk and post pictures and video of your walk on our Las Vegas Walk Facebook Page. You may also post photos of your loved ones and messages of hope to the event Facebook page. Please use the hashtag #stopsuicide
Join us at Craig Ranch Regional Park on June 13th from 9 am to 11 am to pick up your walker shirts for those earned them. We will host a Hope and Healing Activity and walk together!
The safety and well-being of our participants is our top priority. We know that these are uncertain times, and if you are feeling extra anxious please see the blog post from AFSP’s Doreen Marshall, Ph.D., on how to take care of your mental health in the face of uncertainty as well as 8 ways to manage our anxiety surrounding coronavirus.
Please continue to take care of yourself, and thank you for your dedication and support of AFSP and preventing suicide in Las Vegas.
Welcome to the Out of the Darkness
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.
