Volunteers launching Dundalk's Darkness Into Light walk last year
A date has been announced for this year's Darkness into Light in Dundalk - the annual walk will take place in over 50 venues across Ireland on May 12th at
Darkness Into Light is a global movement against suicide which saw over 150,000 people across Ireland walk until dawn to raise money for Pieta House in 2017.
The charity event sees participants walk or run a 5km route in order to raise awareness of issues such as suicide, self-harm, and stigma surrounding mental health issues.
The early dawn represents hope and is symbolic of the work of Pieta House; bringing people from darkness back into the light.
Last year, Dundalk IT hosted the walk. Huge numbers took part in Dundalk's first Darkness Into Light and raised over €60,000.
A notice on Darkness Into Light's website advises that registration will open soon.
