Virtual Anchorage School District
Out of the Darkness Campus Walk
Dear Students, Faculty, and Families,
It is with great pleasure I invite you to join the Alaska Chapter of the American Foundation for
Suicide Prevention (AFSP) on Saturday, April 25th at 2:00 PM for an online experience like no
other. AFSP will be hosting the Anchorage School District Out of the Darkness Campus Walk,
Participants can join AFSP and Eagle River High School Principal, Mr. Timothy Helvey as well as
students from the ERHS You Are Not Alone club for the virtual honor bead ceremony and
variety of social media engagement opportunities.
The ASD OTD Campus Walk will be streamed live on Facebook at
https://www.facebook.com/AFSPAlaska. AFSP has been working hard on outlining a virtual
program that focuses on saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.
Although we may be physically distancing ourselves and remaining in a hunker down mode, it is
important to know we can still connect with one another to create a culture that is smart about
mental health and ensure the Out of the Darkness Walks remain a place of healing, celebration
and a path forward. Please join AFSP by registering online at www.afsp.org/asd and then tuning
in online Saturday, April 25th at 2:00 PM Live on Facebook.
