Out of the Darkness Campus Walks

Out of the Darkness Campus Walks

From high schools to colleges, our students are making a profound difference in raising awareness and funds for suicide prevention.

We are very proud of the young people in our community who are working to live in a world in which losing friends and loved ones to suicide will one day be a thing of the past.

To do this, local students organize Out of the Darkness Campus Walks each year to raise money to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide, and provide support for people who have lost someone to suicide. These 3–5 mile walk events occur in the spring at campuses across the country, and together they raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for AFSP’s national and local efforts.

Below are the walks being held in your state. For a complete list, click here.
