Invite your family, friends, colleagues, businesses, schools and services to sign up for a ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ event in 2019. Fundraise for ‘ANY’ mental health or suicide prevention charity and join thousands of past ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ participants, who donated over £300,000 via previous events. Mental health is important to everyone and by walking in unity, we inspire our local communities and people across the country to promote ‘Mental Health Equality for All’.

Walking Out Of Darkness in Norwich is a wonderful 10km route highlighting fusion of the modern and historic, one complementing the other.
