Darkness Into Light (DIL) is Pieta House's flagship annual fundraising and awareness event.
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 House. From small beginnings, the movement has grown year on year and in 2018 over 200,000 people took part in 150 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. A 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 €20 million, which has enabled us to keep both doors and 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 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Walk with us, talk with us, so that together we can create a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.
