Out of the Darkness Walk

The Out of the Darkness Waco Walk provides community, connection, healing, and hope for survivors of suicide loss and those with lived experience.

We are moving forward with plans to host the walk in-person on Saturday, September 25th. The health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers will be our top priorities as we work with local authorities to make decisions about event details. Every dollar raised allows the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.



The event is finished.

    I was surprised to learn balloons were released for this event. Perhaps the organizers did not know what happens

    Well I have the results from the vet. She choked to death on a balloon. The string was all the down into her stomach but the bulk of the balloon was stuck in her throat. I wish people wouldn’t release balloons. They end up in places that they shouldn’t and donkeys will eat anything. My little Ninnie died over a memorial balloon someone let go! It was not a very big balloon but rather a small rubber one. Now I will be checking every inch of my property for items like this. I can’t deal with another death. PLEASE DO NOT RELEASE BALOONS TO REMEMBER SOMEONE BY. THEY END UP HURTING OTHERS.
    I want to say thank you to everyone who has sent me messages and for all the lovely comments. At only 3 months she had me totally wrapped around her little hoof! I will have her ashes back next week. I have ordered a special ceramic donkey from a friend that she is painting to look just like her to put her ashes in.
