Darkness into Light walk is set to return this year for its seventh cycle; departing early in the morning from the Emerald Ballroom, along with 200 similar fundraisers happening nationwide on the day.
Darkness into Light is Pieta House’s top fundraising and awareness event aiming to help those impacted by suicide and self-harm. The walk brings the participants from the pitch black of the early morning on a silent walk through their towns, eventually finishing their journey at the sunrise, symbolising victims finding the light of hope and wellness. Last year, over 450 locals joined the fundraiser, with the town lit in a great display of candlelight and lanterns.
This year’s event will depart from the Emerald Ballroom at 04:15am on Saturday May 6 2023. You can register to participate or donate online at darknessintolight.ie.
Fully qualified therapists are also available 24/7 at the helpline (180) 024 7247 or by texting HELP to 51444 for those in distress or crisis.
