Helping you get through tough times

Darkness into Light

This Friday night/Saturday morning Pieta House’s Darkness into Light will celebrate its seventh year.

Darkness into Light LogoIt’s a 5 km walk or run that begins after 4 am and is growing each year.

In aid of Pieta House, the centre for the prevention of suicide and self-harm, the event has grown beyond all expectations.

Taking part

Some of the ReachOut.com staff have taken part on a number of occasions and will do again this year, in different locations.

It is without a doubt a hugely successful fundraiser for Pieta House, but it’s also a really enjoyable, feel-good event.

Sense of community

People take part with their families, friends and neighbours. Groups of people do it together to mark someone they know and loved who took their own lives. The atmosphere is of hope, positivity and community.

This year, Pieta House are encouraging all those taking part in this year’s event to reach out and share their experience with whoever is beside you. No one should walk alone.

Darkness into Light, which is supported by Electric Ireland, has become a symbol of hope, and celebration of life that everyone should experience, at least once.
