POSTPONED : Darkness into Light 2020

May 9, 2020 @ 4:15 am

Pieta have taken the very difficult decision to postpone Darkness Into Light 2020 until the Autumn. The COVID-19 outbreak that we are currently seeing in Ireland poses an unprecedented challenge to our communities, and the safety and wellbeing of our clients, volunteers, staff and of the general public is at the heart of this decision.  The event will proceed later in the year, and we expect to be able to come back to you with a new date in the coming weeks.

Darkness into Light is an annual walking event and fundraiser held, primarily, across Ireland. Participants meet before dawn (4.15am) on a particular Saturday in May and walk or run for 5km to meet the sunrise. Founded in 2009 by psychologist Joan Freeman as a fundraiser in the Phoenix Park for Pieta House suicide prevention and counselling, 400 attended the first event while the 2017 event was attended by an estimated 150,000 – 200,000, participants at more than 150 locations.[5] Similar events occur in Australia and New Zealand, Asia and North America.
