Every 18 minutes in the U.S., someone dies by suicide. This summer, men and women will gather in Chicago and San Francisco from all
over the country to do something bold in the face of this fact. They will walk together 20 miles through the night, from dusk until dawn. It's
called the Out of the Darkness Overnight and it's designed to help shed light on the issue of suicide. We're bringing together friends, family
members and loved ones whose lives have been touched by suicide or depression, giving them a voice to issues that have previously been
kept in silence. Each walker agrees to raise at least $1,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Net proceeds will
fund research, education, survivor and awareness programs – both to prevent suicide and to assist those affected by suicide.
