Parking Information and Stadium Rules
As with last year, there will be a parking fee at the event. Due to changes in Highmark's policies, there will be a parking fee to park at the stadium. This will be paid directly to Highmark Stadium and parking in the Highmark Stadium lot is available on a first come, first serve basis. There is also paid parking available in the parking garage at Station Square.
Please note that no parking is permitted on W. Station Square Drive outside of the stadium. The street will be closed once the event starts for the walk route and cars parked here will be ticketed by Station Square properties.
Additionally, as a reminder, no food or drink other than water is permitted on the field, per Highmark Stadium's guidelines. We are encouraging everyone to bring their own, filled water bottles. Water will be available at certain points throughout the field and before at the start of the 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.
