- Rock Painting Station
- Paint a rock with messages, pictures or memories of a loved one. Take them home with you or leave at the park as a message of hope for someone else!
- Honor Bead Table
- We all walk for different reasons. Maybe we have lost someone to suicide, or perhaps we walk because we have friends or family that live with a mental health condition. It is our goal to honor all of the reasons you choose to walk.
- Stop by our Honor Bead Tent and pick up your honor beads to wear. Click here to learn more about our Honor Beads.
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.
