Walk to Fight Suicide- Polk County Out of the Darkness Walk
December 5, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
NEW WALK LOCATION – This year the walk will be moving to Lake Parker Park in Lakeland! Lake Parker Park is pet-friendly, has ample free parking, and we will be utilizing the corporate pavilion.
The Walk will be through beautifully shaded Lake Parker Park and approximately 2 miles in length.
Our community has always been the heart of the Out of the Darkness Walks. The global pandemic has impacted the emotional and economic well-being of many individuals and families, and left many of us to manage a variety of emotions, including feelings of uncertainty. We also know increases in suicide are not a foregone conclusion if we act now to mitigate risk and support the mental health of our friends, families, and neighbors. But we need your help. Every dollar you raise through the Out of the Darkness Walks allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.
It’s more important than ever for us to stay connected. Though there are many unknowns, there are a few things we know for sure:
You belong to a strong community united in an effort to fight suicide while showing up for yourself, recognizing and honoring those you love, raising awareness, educating communities, supporting one another, and sharing hope.
We remain dedicated to providing you with opportunities to connect, heal, share stories, create impact, and show you that you are not alone.
Mental Health and suicide prevention are more important than ever, and we’re confident that with your help we can reach more people than ever before.
