10th Annual Out of the Darkness Walk

This weekend, the community is invited to come together to shine a light of hope. 

Tyler West was here to tell us more about the "Out of the Darkness Walk" to prevent suicide, and Annie Deramus was here to share her story of survival.
 
More on the walk:
The Out of the Darkness Community Walk here in central Arkansas takes place at Dickey-Stephens Park on Sunday, November 5, 2017.

Check-in begins at noon and the walk starts at 2:15 p.m. It's a 3 mile walk starting at Dickey-Stephens Park and continues along the Little Rock and NLR sides of the river.

  • We are expecting over 3000 registered walkers.
  • There are over 400 Community Walks taking place across the country this fall with nearly a quarter of a million people participating, each contributing their voices to support research and education that saves lives.
  • This is the 10 year walk anniversary. The first walk started in 2008 in Little Rock.
  • These walks are a time to come together and support each other. They are uplifting and hopeful.

Suicide is a leading cause of death, and it's preventable . It touches millions of lives - people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds - but the research is clear: suicide is preventable, and the more people who stand up for suicide prevention and mental health, the more lives we can save.

Together we encourage those who struggle to seek help, improve the quality of their lives and stop this tragic loss of life .

Talk saves lives - whether you are suffering from suicidal thoughts, or you're concerned about someone, assume you are the only person who will reach out.
