Darkess into Light 2018

Darkness Into Light (DIL) is Pieta House’s flagship annual fundraising and awareness event. It started with approximately 400 people in the now iconic yellow DIL T-shirts walking the 5km course in Dublin’s Phoenix Park in 2009.

This year, we will have roughly 180 DIL venues across Ireland and worldwide. Last year we had 180,000 people sharing the light and helping us to promote suicide prevention and to tackle the stigma that leads people to the doors of Pieta House centres. Please join in on Saturday 12 May 2018.
