The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention will host its Southern Arizona Out of the Darkness Walk on Saturday October 10, 2020. The walk will be held at Reid Park again this year. Registration will begin at 9:00 am and the walk will start at 10:00 am.

Tucson needs all the volunteers we can get. We are looking for people to help with the walk planning committee, subcommittees, and of course day of event volunteers. The following is a tentative list of the committees:

Walker & Team Recruitment, Logistics, Registration (day of and prior registration), Walker Communication, Volunteer Support & Management, Corporate Team Development, Sponsorship/In-kind Donations, PR & Media, Entertainment & Programming, Medical/Emotional Support, Food and Beverage and Raffle Table.

Donate as little or as much time as you feel inspired to do. Every job is important from taking out the trash to securing sponsors. This walk can't be done without you! And volunteering as well as being on a committee is often more fun with a friend or family member that might enjoy helping as well.So don't feel bad if you can only donate an hour. It makes a difference!

OUR WALK GOAL IS TO RAISE $70,000.00. We can do it Arizona!

If you can't volunteer.....WALK! And if you can't walk.....SHARE the information with others please.

There will be a Walk Kick Off TBA, and the committee meetings are once a month and you can attend in person or via zoom on a computer or smartphone, or even call in.
