Will you help save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide?

The Out of the Darkness Delaware County Walk is a special event that provides community, connection, healing, and hope for survivors of suicide loss and those with lived experience.

We are moving forward with plans to host the walk in-person on Sunday, September 26th. By registering, you are joining a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide while showing up for yourself, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing hope.

Every dollar you raise allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.

The health and safety of our participants, staff, and volunteers will be our top priorities as we work with local authorities to make decisions about event details.
