Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Georgia Experience
While the Out of the Darkness Walks in Georgia are going to look different this year, our mission to Save Lives and Bring Hope to Those Affected by Suicide has not changed. We are a strong and resilient community, united in our effort to fight suicide, raise awareness, educate our communities, support those who have lost loved ones, and support those with lived experience. We use our voices and share our stories to provide hope.
We invite you to join us on Sunday, November 8th for the NEW Georgia Out of the Darkness Experience. We’re working hard to plan meaningful opportunities to connect and inspire you, and we will share more details about our exciting plans in the coming weeks. We want to keep you up-to-date with the most current information so be sure to sign up and join us!
Register Now and show the world that we are always #TogetherToFightSuicide.
Registration is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted until December 31st.

WAIT … ARE WE STILL WALKING TO FIGHT SUICIDE?
YES! The Georgia Out of the Darkness Experience is a real walk, but on your terms: you get to choose your own course, what time you start, and who walks next to you (within safe distancing guidelines)! The walking is real—it's the community that's virtual this year.
We realize that nothing can substitute the experience of coming together in person, and we will continue to seek ways in which we can do that safely. We welcome your ideas for gathering online and in-person this fall. Please contact the AFSP Georgia Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. In the meantime, we look forward to connecting in new ways, and we invite you to join us on this journey.
By registering for the Georgia Out of the Darkness Experience, you join a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide while showing up for yourself, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing hope.
All participants can create and join teams. This is a great way to motivate family, friends, and co-workers to join you!
Registered walkers will be emailed updates and invites to e-vents in the upcoming months, as well as given the opportunity to participate for incentive prizes
Individuals who raise $150 or more, will be shipped our exclusive 2020 Out of the Darkness t-shirt!
Registered walkers will be emailed an exclusive Georgia Out of the Darkness Experience sign to print! Personalize it with your name and your reason for walking. #WhyIWalk
