AboutDarkness into Light, supported by Electric Ireland, is the absolute highlight of the Pieta House calendar!
With several hundred people joining us for our first event in the Phoenix Park in 2009, to thousands upon thousands of people across 14 locations in May of last year, Darkness into Light has grown beyond all expectations.
In May 2009, the Phoenix Park saw the first of the yellow t-shirt clad people assembling at an unthinkable hour. There were about 400 people that morning, all huddled together in the blackness and the cold, standing behind the starting line. Who would have guessed that four years on, the little event we call Darkness into Light would be the symbol of hope, the celebration of life that it is today? With nearly 13,000 participants last year, how could it get any bigger? But it has, and now Darkness into Light is celebrated across 20 venues in Ireland. In addition, we have a terrific new sponsor, Ireland’s leading energy supplier, Electric Ireland who are working in partnership with us to ensure 2013 is the best year yet for Darkness into Light.
Think about the 13,000 remarkable people who attended last year. Think about how delicious it will be to collapse back into your warm bed later on that morning, knowing that you’ve had your Good Deed for the day, and your exercise for the week! But ultimately, think about how Darkness into Light is the flagship fundraising and awareness event for Pieta House, and without your support, we could not have helped over 7,300 people in distress over the last 7 years.
