Welcome to the Out of the Darkness

Missoula Walk  


The Out of the Darkness Community Walk 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 health conditions have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.

If you're looking for support and/or resources, please visit www.afsp.org/get-help and www.afsp.org/resources.


Join us at the Paddlehead Stadium for another awesome walk experience. We will walk along Kim Williams Trail approximately a 3 mile route more details to come. There will be a number of pre-walk events planned in the community to help support our fundraising goals. We will have fun prizes for top fundraisers and top teams!
