Darkness into Light has grown to be a worldwide event coordinated by Dublin-based Pieta House.
Pieta House offers services to those in suicidal crisis, people who engage in self-harm and those bereaved by suicide to raise awareness of suicide.
Starting while it’s still dark, and finishing just as the sun begins to rise, Darkness into Light has become a global phenomenon, and a symbol of the fight to prevent suicide. In 2008, about 400 people participated in the first event in a city park in Dublin, Ireland. Almost a decade later, Darkness into Light has had over 100,000 participants, and has spread to every corner of the world. The joy and camaraderie this event emits knows no bounds, and we urge everyone to take part.
Darkness Into Light will take place at more than 150 venues across Ireland and all over the world in the early hours of Saturday 6th May 2017. This year, Austin, TX will be an official location.
Hosted by the Celtic Cowboys Sports & Social Club and supported by Irish Network Austin, it promises to be a very rewarding experience.
