Will you help save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide?
The Out of the Darkness Atlantic-Cape Walk is a special event that provides community, connection, healing, and hope for survivors of suicide loss and those with lived experience.

By registering for the walk, 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 Atlantic-Cape Walk allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.
