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. The 2023 Walk is a much smaller event this year, but we will return in 2024 with our usual large-scale format. If you are interested in joining our 2024 Planning Committee, attend our first meeting on October 11th by registering here.
