Welcome to the Ventura County Out of the Darkness Experience

While AFSP's Out of the Darkness Walks 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.

This year, we invite you to walk, run, bike, swim, or choose your own adventure where you live! Join us on     October 24th at 9am for the Southern California Out of the Darkness Day Opening Ceremony

WAIT … ARE WE STILL WALKING TO FIGHT SUICIDE?

YES! The Ventura County 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.

More great reasons to register:

  • All participants can create and join teams. This is a great way to motivate family, friends, and co-workers to join you!

  • Registered participants will receive a HOPE SIGN to print and carry with them! Personalize it with your name and your reason for walking. #WhyIWalk

  • After the e-vent, you'll get a certificate of achievement to print out and show off!

  • You can connect with our new virtual community by joining our brand-new Facebook group! You'll meet other participants from across Southern California.
