Nashville Out of the Darkness Walk
Volunteers at the 2021 Nashville Walk.
Will you help save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide?
The Nashville Out of the Darkness Walk is a special event that provides community, connection, healing, and hope for survivors of suicide loss and those with lived experience in Middle Tennessee.
By registering for the walk on October 29, 2022, you are joining a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide while showing up for yourself, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing hope.
Every dollar you raise through the Nashville Walk allows the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.
Organizers have partnered with local non-profit Your Heart on Art to offer healing art therapy and a space to express yourself with creativity and color.
