Oregon State University was the first Oregon school to host an Out of the Darkness Campus Walk!
The OSU community recognizes the importance of mental health. Suicide prevention is vital for our community; we need your help to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. Encourage everyone you know to REGISTER, DONATE, and JOIN the movement!
This year’s event puts a virtual twist on the classic Campus Walk. Join us April 17th for the livestreamed ceremony with community speakers, an Honor Bead Ceremony, and memorial submissions. Stick around afterwards for our virtual resource fair – guided meditation sessions, community partners, OSU clubs, and more!
How to Participate
- Register: join solo or join/create a team – free for anyone, anywhere! Click here for step-by-step guide.
- Share: post messages of hope on social media with #BeavsStopSuicide – Instagram @ootd_osu

- Fundraise: set a personal or team goal and share your page’s link – put the FUN in FUNdraising!
- Get Active: use your page’s Activity Tracker to log mental-health related activities.
At in-person Walks, wearing honor beads shows each other that we are all connected to the cause, and that no one is alone. During the Honor Bead portion of our virtual event or in your Hope & Healing submissions, you can comment colored emojis in place of honor beads.
Copy your personal or team page link and share on social media with a short caption! Share your fundraising goals with friends and family or ask businesses you know to sponsor you.
Individually or as a team, choose an activity to track and ask friends or family for pledges by Minutes. Need ideas? You can choose any mental health-related activity: i.e., meditation, yoga, running, painting, etc. Click here for more info.
Raise $25 by 04/17/2021 to receive a #BeavsStopSuicide Sticker. Raise $100 and receive an official Out of the Darkness T-Shirt! Raise more than that, and you can qualify for a variety of other prize levels.
Prizes are based on individual fundraising, not team fundraising; donations made to a team will not go to any of the team members’ individual fundraising goals.
