The Out of the Darkness Overnight is a fundraising walk like no other. It's a 16-18 mile journey through the night, from dusk until dawn where a courageous community of men and women like you will break the silence and bring the issues of depression and suicide into the light.
Every 14 minutes, someone in the U.S. dies by suicide. These statistics are staggering and yet remain hidden and not discussed. We walk to bring the issues of suicide, depression, and mental disorders into the spotlight and to fund the work of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention - work that will truly save lives.
Get involved by becoming a Walker, Crew member or Volunteer. You'll sense it in the air and see it in the faces all around you. It's a tide of hope that will not be turned. A well of generosity that will never run dry. This is what all-out commitment feels like. This is the road to a future where no one has to suffer in silence.
You’ll be completely supported from start to finish beginning with our inspirational coaches that will assist you with valuable training and fundraising advice. During the event you’ll be supported by our dedicated staff and Crew that will be there from the moment you begin walking until the very last step.
The more of us that take part in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk, the louder our voice will be and the greater our impact will be on the nation. Please visit www.theovernight.org to begin your journey.
