Partner with the Illinois Chapter of AFSP in sponsoring the largest suicide prevention walk in the country — the Out of the Darkness Chicagoland Walk.

The 16th annual Out of the Darkness Chicagoland Walk in 2019 engaged over 25,000 walkers, volunteers and donors to raise more than $1.1 Million dollars.

The numbers illustrate that suicide prevention is being recognized as a serious public health issue and communities, businesses and individuals are actively fighting this leading cause of death.
