DARKNESS INTO LIGHT – Pieta House’s flagship fundraising and awareness walk/run – will take place in 150 locations across Ireland, north and south and all over the world this year.
Now in its ninth year, Darkness Into Light (DIL) – again supported by Electric Ireland – will start in the early hours of Saturday 6th May. This unique event begins in darkness at 4.15am as thousands of people walk or run a 5km route while the dawn is breaking. Last year 130,000 people woke up early to walk or run from the darkness into the light. Find out where a Darkness Into Light walk is taking place near you HERE.
People can now register for this year’s events at www.darknessintolight.ie.
Since it began in one venue – the Phoenix Park in Dublin in 2009 – DIL has grown into a global movement against suicide. Funds raised help to keep Pieta House counselling services free to those in suicidal crisis, people who engage in self-harm and those bereaved by suicide.
