The 13th annual Alabama Out of the Darkness Community Walk

Sunday, November 4

Volunteers from Birmingham and surrounding areas are joining the quarter of a million people who are walking in towns across the United States to draw attention to the fight for suicide prevention. This walk supports the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s education and support programs and its bold goal to reduce the annual U.S. rate of suicide 20 percent by the year 2025

Last year, this local walk raised over $148,000 and had over 1,800 participants.

Speakers at the Alabama Out of the Darkness Walk will include board members of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Alabama Chapter, and will include a performance by local celebrity Casey Thrasher, and American Idol Season 14 candidate who will sing his new song “Survivor.”

The song is available for download on iTunes.
