Welcome to the Out of the Darkness
Fargo/Moorhead Area 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.

Fundraise to Help #StopSuicide
Why should I come to this walk? The F/M Area Out of the Darkness Austin is a special event that provides community, connection, healing, and hope for survivors of suicide loss and those with lived experience.
By walking with us, 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 through the F/M Area Walk allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.
How long is our walk route? Our walk route is less just under 2.5 miles. Please remember to wear comfortable shoes. We walk not run.
Where do I Park? Please park in the Arena’s parking lot. Please do not park in the parking lot of the park as we walk to be respectful of park goers.
What If it rains? - We will walk rain or shine. If there is heavy rain, activities will be inside the Arena. If not, everything will be on the green space outside the Arena.
How will registration work this year? If you are pre-registered and you don’t have anything to turn in or pick up, you don’t need to check in. Please tell your family and friends to pre-register! There is not a fee to register, but there is power in numbers! We need the F/M Community to know that we all stand together in support of suicide prevention! There will also be QR codes pasted throughout the area.
If you raised $150 and need to pick up an Out of the Darkness T-shirt or need to drop off a donation, you can do so at the Fundraiser T-shirt Station by the entrance of the Scheels Arena (If there is rain, this will be inside the lobby up the stairs of the Arena) Thank you so much for supporting AFSP!
Is there a registration fee? No, there is no registration fee to participate.
