Out of the Darkness is an on-campus student organization which raises awareness and funds for suicide prevention through the American Foundation for Suicide Awareness. The purpose of this signature event is to engage young adults in AFSP's mission and programs, raise funds for youth suicide prevention and programs, create a brand identity for AFSP fundraising, maximize fundraising success and laying the ground work for AFSP's educational programming and chapters in the future. At the end of the fundraising year OOTD hold a campus walk where efforts will be celebrated and participants will walk in solidarity for those lost to suicide and/or struggling with mental health. Campus walks will dramatically increase the number of young people involved in AFSP and the amount of funds available for suicide prevention research and education; both are needed to save lives. Why Walk? To change the culture. To save lives. To revent suicide. We all have a reason to walk, and each reason connects us.
