The Out of the Darkness Overnight is a fundraising walk of up to 18 miles throughout the night, to raise funds (and make a bold statement) for suicide prevention and to assist those whose lives have been impacted by suicide. Organized by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the Overnight is designed to bring the issue of suicide "out into the light".
The Out of the Darkness Overnight is a walk like no other. It's an 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. We will walk together to turn heartbreak into hope for tomorrow.
They also aim to continue the work of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide) - work that will truly save lives.

Even if you have not directly been affected by suicide or depression, we still hope you will get involved because you most likely do have someone in your life who is suffering from depression or whose has been impacted by suicide in some other way... you just don't know it yet.
