Pieta House Fundraising Walk • May 6
On Saturday May 6th Darkness Into Light, Pieta House’s 5km walk/run event will celebrate its 9th year and it’s second year in San Francisco. 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.
Pieta House is a center for the prevention of self-harm or suicide, which was opened over a decade ago in Lucan, Ireland.
