Dundalk's Darkness Into Light walk 2017

Volunteers launching Dundalk's Darkness Into Light walk last year

Registration for Dundalk's second-ever Darkness Into Light walk is now open

The 2018 event will take place on May 12th at 4.15am at Dundalk Institute of Technology.

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.   

This afternoon, Darkness Into Light Dundalk released information about early bird prices and ticket costs. See below:
