"Walking Toward the Light is a song inspired by the Tommy Fuss Team and their participation in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walks. It is written and performed by Ben Tousley, a local folk singer and song writer. The song is inspirational and empowering, and while it is very personal, it is also universal and will resonate with all those who have lost a loved one to suicide and who work to raise awareness and remove the stigma associated with mental illness.

After the 2008 Overnight we began articulating ‘Why We Walk’ and the idea of a song was born. Ben Tousley agreed to work with us and facilitated a focus group to hear our stories. He translated them into a beautiful song, which will be used to inspire and comfort, to educate and empower as we continue our journey.

We are deeply greatful for Ben Tousley’s willingness to work with us, his understanding and compassion, and his innate ability to tell our story with words and music that not only inspire and empower, but comfort and provide a sense of peace. Thanks also to all the musicians who participated in this recording."
