Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Denver Metro 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 bold goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

For Those Observing Rosh Hashanah

We understand this date overlaps with Rosh Hashanah and apologize for the inconvenience this may cause for those celebrating the holiday. We spoke with other venues that can accommodate an event of our size, and none had alternate dates available, as many large events tend to secure the same weekend, annually.  Please know there is a virtual walker option if you are unable to attend and would like to be involved with the Denver Metro Walk. We hope you will join us for one of the other walks taking place throughout the state this year, and will join us again at the Denver Metro Walk next year.  If you would like to discuss other ways to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Colorado Chapter please contact Sheri Cole, AFSP CO Area Director at [email protected].

Activities of Hope and Healing

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. Learn more by watching our honor bead video.
