Out of the Darkness Walks 2024

Overnight Walk– Boston
The Tommy Fuss Team returns to Boston for its 18th Overnight Walk on June 22, 2024.

Boston will forever hold special memories of cherished times spent with Tommy. As we walk these familiar streets, we will never forget all those we have lost to suicide, those who continue to struggle, and those who want to learn more. 

We remain committed to supporting the mission of the AFSP and its bold goal for a world where no one dies by suicide. 

Please consider a donation to one of our walkers, each of whom has pledged to raise $1,000.00 for the important work of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Click on images for each walker’s donation page.

Members of the Tommy Fuss Team will participate in their ninth annual Morris County Out of the Darkness Community Walk on September 14, 2024 at Cougar Field in Chatham, NJ.  The annual walk raises funding for suicide prevention research and educational programs, as well as raising awareness within our local communities and schools.  Please consider a donation to one of our walkers.  Click on images for each walker’s donation page.

In 2023 Chairman Curt Ritter and participant Megan Ruzicka spoke to CBSNews in the studio to share why they walk and what to expect.

We know we can’t do our lifesaving work alone. We are grateful to our volunteers, donors, Out of the Darkness Walkers, researchers, advocates, and partner companies and organizations for sharing their passion, lived experience and expertise with us.
