Welcome to the Out of the Darkness
Central Oregon Walk
WOW! We've already exceed our original goal of $10,800 for the Central Oregon walk. Incredible!
We're so grateful -- and we want to challenge our community to do even more. Honor 988, the national suicide prevention lifeline, by raising $988 each day for the next three days. That's just 10 gifts of $9.88 each day. And, each gift helps raise awareness about the 24/7 lifeline, 988.
Thank you for being a lifeline for your community. We'll see you at the walk!
Location: Alpenglow Park, Bend, OR
Event Opens: 10:00 am
Walk Start Time: 11:00 am
Walk Chair: Kelly Wilder, 541-771-4721, email@example.com
The event opens at 10:00. Pick up your honor bibs and walk beads, visit community partners, and learn how to stop suicide in your community through AFSP's resources. You can also drop off donations, pick-up fundraising incentives you've won, and get some AFSP swag to show your support.
Join us at 11:00 for the opening ceremony, with the walk immediately following. The walk route is approximately one mile, and follows paved trails around the park. If you're not able to complete the walk, that's just fine - please still join us for the event and ceremony.
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.
