Virtual* 2020 Butler Out of the Darkness Walk
Pre-register online for free at afsp.org/butler
The Butler Univ. Campus Walk is still happening virtually, so you can continue to raise awareness & funds while asking others to join you as a Virtual Walker.
The safety and well-being of our participants is our top priority. We know that these are uncertain times, and if you are feeling extra anxious please see the blog post from AFSP’s Doreen Marshall, Ph.D., on how to take care of your mental health in the face of uncertainty as well as 8 ways to manage our anxiety surrounding coronavirus.
There are still so many ways to continue to raise awareness and funds for the cause, and to “virtually” walk with us.
- Be on the Stream Team! Stream to raise funds and show everyone what you are doing instead of walking on that day. You can also go on Facebook Live or IGTV to share with everyone on social.
- The CW Bracket begins March 16th, and your school can be on the Bracket and win whether the walk happens or not! The winning walk participants who raise $25+ during the challenge will win a prize!
You will still receive a free shirt for raising $100!
You can still receive super cool Walk swag!
Please continue to take care of yourself, and thank you for your dedication and support of AFSP and preventing suicide at Butler.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is the leader in the fight against suicide. We fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. Led by CEO Robert Gebbia and headquarted in New York, AFSP has 70+ local chapters around the Country hosting events nationwide, all working to Save Lives and Bring Hope to those Impacted by Suicide.
Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
Why We Walk ...
Every year suicide claims more lives than war, M**der, and natural disasters combined, and yet suicide prevention doesn't get anywhere near the funding given to other leading causes of death. It's up to Walkers like us to make a difference. Together we can change the conversation about mental health and put a stop to this tragic loss of life. #BeTheVoice to #StopSuicide
The Out of the Darkness Campus Walks are the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's (AFSP) signature student fundraising series, designed to engage youth and young adults in the fight to prevent suicide, the second leading cause of death among people ages 18-24.
Thank you for walking with us! #TogetherWeAreStronger
