Softball Takes Part in Out of Darkness Walk

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara softball took part in the Out of Darkness Walk in San Francisco in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) on Sept. 24. The entire team took part in the walk and raised $3,600.

"It was great to be able to support the AFSP and take part in the Out of Darkness Walk," Santa Clara head coach Lisa Mize said. "This is a cause that I am personally very supportive of. It meant a lot to have the team join me and be a part of such a worthy cause."

The Out of Darkness Walks are AFSP's largest fundraiser, bringing in millions of dollars every year for suicide prevention programs. The AFSP funds research, creates educational programs, and advocates for public policy. The organization also supports the survivors of suicide loss.
