Idea At A Glance
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention arranges “Out of the Darkness” community walkathons to raise awareness of mental health issues. Over 200 communities across the United States held an “Out of the Darkness” walkathon in 2012. Proceeds from the walk help fund research, education, and advocacy programs to better understand and prevent suicide.
The Energy for Life Walkathons aim to raise awareness about mitochondrial disease and help raise funds for further research. Using a “peer-to-peer” fundraising strategy where registrants have their own online fundraising page, the walkathon allows everyone interested in the cause to create a team and participate.
