Welcome to the Out of the Darkness Prosper Experience
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.

About the Event
The Prosper Out of the Darkness Walk will look a little different this year, but we are making preparations to make it a memorable experience in spite of Covid-19 restrictions currently in place. The two biggest changes are the mask requirement and the social distancing requirement. To meet those guidelines, we will be staggering the start times for the walk throughout the morning, and masks will be required where social distancing is not possible.
The start times will occur every 20 minutes between 8-11am. As we get closer to the walk date, we'll send team captains a link to a sign up genius to sign up for a specific time for you and your team (up to 20 people) to begin the walk.
You may bring your friendly pup on a leash and pick up an AFSP bandana for a $10 donation.

Activities of Hope and Healing
We'll have our honor beads wall so that you can choose the color of beads that reflect your personal loss, struggle, or connection to the cause.
We'll have a memory wall for you to hang a photo of the special person you lost to suicide. We will have resources available to help you through your loss or struggle, and we will have many messages of hope and healing.
Most of all, we will help you to see that you are not alone!
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.

Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you at the Prosper Experience!
