Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Rockland County Experience
We will have an in-person walkthrough opportunity on your walk date where you can:
- THEN Take a walk, on your own/with your team. Your Walk. Your Way. Together to fight suicide. The walking is real—it's the community that's virtual this year and that community will be all of our HV supporters on October 24th! It will be a Celebration of HOPE and Remembrance and we want everyone to be part of it.
October 24th, as a unified community, we will come together virtually,
for a chapter wide event.
Help Spread the Word! Please help promote the event through your social media outlets! #OutoftheDarkness
There are many more social media outlets, please use any and all to help promote the event. Tell your story about why you walk!
Raise $150 by 10/03/2020 and receive an official Out of the Darkness Walk T-shirt!
Remember, in addition to fundraising online, you will be able to turn in additional donations the day of the Walk.

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. Learn more by watching our honor bead video.
The Out of the Darkness Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It unites our communities and provides an opportunity to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.
