DARKNESS INTO LIGHT – Pieta House’s flagship fundraising awareness event – celebrates its tenth year this May in over 170 venues in Ireland and across the world. The event is being supported again this year by Electric Ireland. Darkness Into Light began in 2009 when 400 people came together in Dublin’s Phoenix Park to raise awareness about suicide and self-harm. From these humble beginnings, Darkness Into Light has blossomed into a global movement against suicide and self-harm, with over 200,000 expected to take part on Saturday, May 12th this year. This unique event begins at 4.15am as participants walk 5km routes around the world and finish as the dawn is breaking, journeying together from Darkness Into Light.
