Darkness into Light, Sydney

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. Our 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.

Walk with us, talk with us, so that together we can create a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.

Please join us on Saturday 11th May this year!
