Welcome to the 

Santa Rosa Out of The Darkness Experience

Please See Below for the Out of the Darkness Santa Rosa Segments!

While the Out of the Darkness Walk in Santa Rosa 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.

We invite you to join us on  09/26/2020 for the Santa RosaOut 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. We want to keep you up-to-date with the most current information so be sure to sign up and join us!

WAIT … Are We Still Walking to Fight Suicide?

YES! The Santa Rosa 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—it's the community that's virtual this year.

Why Register?

We realize that nothing can substitute the experience of coming together in person, and we will continue to seek ways in which we can do that safely. We welcome your ideas for gathering online and in-person this fall. Please contact the Committee Lead at for more information. In the meantime, we look forward to connecting in new ways, and we invite you to join us on this journey.

More great reasons to register:

  • Project 2025 - a bold initiative to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025 is funded by walkers and donors like you. 
  • 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 be emailed an exclusive Santa Rosa Out of the Darkness Experience Sign to print! Personalize it with your name and reason for walking - #WhyIWalk.
