New York City Overnight Walk: Open Teams

One of the most unique and powerful aspects of the 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 Overnight. We have several teams every year that are open to welcoming solo participants. If you have any questions, please contact your Overnight Walker Coaches at [email protected].
