More than 100,000 people are expected to turn out for suicide and self-harm charity Pieta House’s annual Darkness Into Light fundraising and awareness event in association with Electric Ireland this Saturday morning, 9th May in one of the 80 locations in Ireland and abroad.
Darkness Into Light is a unique, early morning experience which begins in darkness at 4.15am as thousands of people walk or run a 5km route while dawn is breaking. The early dawn represents hope and is symbolic of the work of Pieta House, bringing people from darkness back into the light.
Registration figures are currently far greater than last year and Pieta House is expecting numbers to exceed the goal of 100,000 participants.
