It started out in 2006 as a pipe dream for Jean Freeman, putting up her home as collateral to fund Pieta House.
Today, with 10 centres all over Ireland, this fine organisation has helped over 22,000 people suffering from self-harm or suicidal thoughts.
And every year, others can show their support – and their thanks – for all that Pieta House does, through the Darkness Into Light walk. Spread over 25 countries and 5 continents, this trek to the break of dawn has become a major fundraiser around the world.
Happening on Saturday, May 9th, as well as Bray, there will be walks taking place in Wicklow Town, Arklow, Baltinglass, Tinahealy and Blessington.
The walk itself begins in darkness, at 4.15am, with thousands of people joining in the 5km trek into the light of sunrise.
Last year, €5.4m was raised from the Darkness Into Light walks, with over 200,000 people taking part around the world. Which all goes to keep Pieta’s counselling services free of charge and freely accessible to those in suicidal crisis, people who engage in self-harm, and to those bereaved by suicide.
You can register now for this year’s May 9th walk – and take advantage of the early bird rates – right here.
