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. 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 is our top priority. We are requesting that participants stay home if they have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 2 weeks, are waiting for Covid-19 test results, have Covid-19 symptoms, or have recently been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for or has symptoms of Covid-19.
