Welcome to the Out of the Darkness
Atlantic-Cape Walk presented by Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City
Thank You Walkers!
We are so grateful you joined us for the 2023 Atlantic-Cape Out of the Darkness Walk! We understand our walkers come to our Out of the Darkness walks for different reasons and we are thankful you chose to support AFSP. Your fundraising efforts allows us to continue to create a culture that is smart about mental health and build initiatives to further understand and prevent suicide.
More than 48,000 people die by suicide in the U.S. each year, making it the 11th leading cause of death. Through our research, education, advocacy, and loss support programs, AFSP has become the leading national organization dedicated to preventing loss of life by suicide.
Our vision is to build a world without suicide. That vision is not possible without your involvement. Thank you for your support of AFSP!
