REGISTER NOW | Darkness Into Light 2021

Darkness Into Light 2021, proudly supported by Electric Ireland, will take place at sunrise on the morning of 8th May. In partnership with local charity Turning Point NI.

Each year the walk provides an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and to show their support for those who have been impacted by suicide. The organiser’s team of dedicated volunteers, across the island of Ireland and overseas, return year on year to make the event a success and to help the charity to continue to raise awareness in the global fight against suicide and self-harm.

A spokesperson for the event said:

“This year, as we cannot gather together at our usual Darkness Into Light venues, we are bringing DIL to you, and asking all our supporters to don their yellow t-shirts and take part in the event at a time and in a location that suits them. We are so looking forward to sharing this very special sunrise with you.

“You can choose to sign up for a special sunrise event - walk, swim, bike or simply share your sunrise moment - or you can take part in the Darkness Into Light Challenge – when you select this option, we’re waiving the sign-up fee for anyone who pledges to fundraise €150.

“Get creative with your activity, and remember that no matter how you choose to take part this year, you’ll be giving the gift of hope to those in your community in suicidal crisis, or self-harming.

“The safety of our supporters is our highest priority, so we ask all participants to ensure that they strictly adhere to the government’s Covid 19 guidelines at all times while taking part in the event. All those walking or running for the event should ensure that their route is properly lit at the time they plan to take part, and that there are no hazards.

“Whatever your planned activity for Darkness Into Light this year, please make sure that all equipment is in good condition, that weather conditions are suitable for the activity you are undertaking, and do not take part in any high-risk activities alone or without the proper support and training.”

All participants in Darkness Into Light 2021 take part at their own risk and should be appropriately insured.
