Out of the Darkness DC Overnight Walk for Suicide Prevention

Nearly every 14 minutes, someone in the US commits suicide. Every minute, someone in the US attempts to take their life. To support research and raise awareness about suicide, the AFSP will hold their annual premier fundraising event, the Overnight Walk. This year, the campaign will take place on June 1-2, from sunrise to sunset, in the nation’s capital, Washington DC. An estimated 2,000 are expected to walk the 16-18 mi. trail this year.
