Aiken Area Out of the Darkness Walk

Event Dates and Times

Saturday, November 16th 9am-1pm
Weeks Recreation Center / 1700 Whiskey Rd. / Aiken, SC
Suicide claims more than 38,000 lives each year in the United States alone, with someone dying by suicide every 13.7 minutes. A suicide attempt is made every minute of every day, resulting in nearly one million attempts made annually.

When you walk in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walks, you join efforts with thousands of people nationwide to raise money for AFSP’s vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives. The walks raise awareness about depression and suicide, and provide comfort and assistance to those who have lost someone to suicide.

Anyone interested in participating can register by going to afsp.org and finding the Aiken event. There are several teams already formed seeking donations. Walk up participants and donations are also welcome on walk day.

Registration ends November 15th at 12pm
