Activities of Hope and Healing
Lakemont Park is closed this year on the day of the walk, so we will have a few food vendor trucks for walkers to purchase food if they would like.
If teams raise more than $500.00 before August 15th ( shown on the registration page) they can have their team name on the back of the shirts that AFSP gives out to walkers (who raise $150.00 or more) and to the sponsors.
Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through. Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection. There is an honor bead for everyone, whether you have lost a loved one, struggle personally, support a friend and/or family member, or all of the above. Learn more by watching our honor bead video.
The Out of the Darkness Experience is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It unites our communities and provides an opportunity to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.
