The Sacramento State University Campus Walk is still happening virtually, so you can continue to raise awareness & funds while asking others to join you as a Virtual Walker.

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.

There are still so many ways to continue to raise awareness and funds for the cause, and to “virtually” walk with us.

- Be on the Stream Team! Stream to raise funds and show everyone what you are doing instead of walking on that day. You can also go on Facebook Live or IGTV to share with everyone on social.

- The CW Bracket begins March 16th, and your school can be on the Bracket and win whether the walk happens or not! The winning walk participants who raise $25+ during the challenge will win a prize!

You will still receive a free shirt for raising $100!

You can still receive super cool Walk swag!

Please continue to take care of yourself, and thank you for your dedication and support of AFSP and preventing suicide at Sacramento State.
