The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are AFSP’s signature fundraising campaign.
Every fall, family members, friends, and colleagues walk 3–5 miles together in hundreds of communities across the nation to prevent suicide, raise awareness, and end the stigma that surrounds depression and other mental disorders.
With each stride, our walkers save lives, honor loved ones lost to suicide and raise funds to support AFSP’s vital mission.
Below are the walks being held in your state. For a complete list, click here.
