2nd Annual Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Saturday, April 7, 2018
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Mellon Center Patio, Chatham University Shadyside Campus

When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.



As the leader in the fight against suicide, and thanks to walkers like you from cities across the country, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.



Online registration closes at noon the Friday before the walk. However, anyone who would like to participate can register in person at the walk from the time check-in begins until the walk starts. Walk donations are accepted until June 30th.



Check-in/Registration Time: 10:00 am


Walk Begins: 11:00 am


Walk Ends: 1:00 pm
