By walking in the 2008 Out of the Darkness Community Walks to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), you will be walking with thousands of people nationwide to raise money for AFSP’s vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide, and assist survivors of suicide loss.
Many of our participants walk in memory of a loved one lost to suicide. You can tell their story and even put your loved one’s photo on your personal web page. Each walk site has its own unique remembrance activity in which you can participate.
Registering is simple — just click here, select the community walk nearest you, and complete the form. You will be guided through the registration process. Once your transaction is complete, you will receive a confirmation email receipt. You can then set up your own personal web page and begin fundraising.
Raising money and forming teams are easy with the tools provided on the website. Register today and make your own gift to start your fundraising efforts. You can e-mail your family, friends, and co-workers, print out sponsorship forms, and personalize a fundraising letter. If you raise $150 or more you will receive a 2008 Out of the Darkness T-shirt on the day of the event. You will also be eligible to earn incentive prizes.
We encourage you to register online and take advantage of all of the fundraising tools, but if you are unable to do so, please call 1-888-333-AFSP (2377) Ext. 13.
