SPRINGFIELD The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) will host its "Out of the Darkness Community Walk" on Sept. 13.

The purpose of the walk is to raise money to heighten awareness, to educate and sponsor local events and conferences. The Western Massachusetts walk will begin at the Jewish Community Center, 1160 Dickinson St. in Springfield, on Sept. 13, beginning at 9 a.m. with a complementary continental breakfast.
