Welcome to the Chico Out of the Darkness Experience
While the Out of the Darkness Walk in Chico is 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 provide resources for those who may be struggling. We use our voices and share our stories to provide HOPE.
We invite you to join us on 10/18/2020 for the Chico 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, so check the web page often. We want to keep you up-to-date with all the most current information so be sure to register and be a part of this very special experience!

WAIT … Are We Still Walking to Fight Suicide?
YES! The Chico 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 social distancing guidelines)! The walking is real, but the Experience is what you make it!

Our community has always been the heart of the Out of the Darkness Walks, but your safety and well-being will always be our top priority. Though there are many unknowns during these trying times, there are a few things we know for sure:
♦ You belong to a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing HOPE.
♦ We remain dedicated to providing you with opportunities to connect, heal, share stories, create impact, and show you that you are not alone.
♦ Now more than ever, mental health and suicide prevention are so important. We are confident that with your help we can reach more people than ever before.
We realize that nothing can substitute the experience of coming together in person, and we can't wait to see you again! In the meantime, we look forward to connecting in new ways, and we invite you to join us on this journey.
