Belmont Out of the Darkness Walk



Walk With Us

The Belmont 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.

By registering for the walk on September 9, 2023, 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 Belmont Walk allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.
