In 2009, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, 400 people set off on the inaugural Darkness Into Light 5km walk to raise funds for Pieta. From small beginnings, the movement has continued to grow, and now there are about 200,000 participants in Darkness Into Light each year.

Each year the walk provides an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and to bring hope to people who have been impacted by suicide.
