Organize a Walk

Thank you for your interest in organizing an Out of the Darkness Community Walk.

The first step is contact walks@afsp.org or (212) 363-3500 Ext. 2029. Please include your city and state in your message.

We will be in touch shortly.

In the meantime, you can get started with these steps: 

  1. Recruit a few friends and/or family members to serve on a committee to help you with planning, outreach, and fundraising for your walk.
  2. Pick a location. Our walks are generally 3 to 5 miles. We recommend a park with ample parking, restrooms, and shelter—all essential to a successful walk.
  3. Pick a date. Our walks generally take place on a Saturday or Sunday between the weekend after Labor Day and mid-November.
 

Thanks and we look forward to helping you organize a successful walk.
