One of the most unique and powerful aspects of the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk is the sense of community present when participants from all across the country unite with the common goal of breaking the silence surrounding suicide and mental health. Joining a team can enhance your Overnight experience by introducing you to new people so that you can begin forming bonds before the Walk even starts. We have several teams every year that are open to welcoming solo walkers. Fundraising is individual and each team member must reach her or his minimum fundraising requirement.
