Darkness Into Light (Postponed)

This event has ended

Various Locations, Saturday 9th May

Darkness Into LightPostponed –  In 2009, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, 400 people set-off on the inaugural Darkness Into Light 5km walk to raise funds for Pieta. From small beginnings, the movement has grown year on year and in 2019 over 200,000 people took part in 200 locations, in 16 countries across 5 continents.

Each year the walk provides an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and to show their support for those who have been bereaved by suicide. Our team of volunteers, in Ireland and overseas, return year on year to help make the experience a rewarding one and to help us all continue to raise awareness in the global fight against suicide and self-harm.

Since Darkness Into Light began, dedicated supporters have helped raise almost €25 million, which has enabled us to keep our doors and our 24/7 helpline open for people in crisis, free of charge. Since 2012, when the first international event took place in London, international charity partners have benefited from an investment of €3.5 million in local mental health support services. Walk with us, talk with us, so that together we can create a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.

Starting at 4:15am, and crossing the finish line just as dawn is breaking, Darkness Into Light, the annual 5k walk/run in aid of Pieta House, Preventing Suicide and Self Harm is in it's 12th year taking place on May 9th, 2020!
