The Out of the Darkness Bronx 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.

Every dollar raised allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.
