We are continuing our support of Pieta House with the upcoming Darkness into Light (DIL) 5km event on Saturday, 12th May 2018, at various locations nationwide, including Dublin, Limerick and Cork. Rachael O’Shaughnessy and Sean Fitzgerald, Solicitors, are members of the DIL Limerick Committee again this year, with Sean acting as route co-ordinator. Many of our staff will be supporting the event and taking part.
DIL is Pieta House’s flagship annual fundraising and awareness event. From approximately 400 people in the iconic yellow DIL T-shirts walking the 5km course in Dublin’s Phoenix Park in 2009 to roughly 180 DIL venues across Ireland and worldwide in 2018.
Last year, 180,000 people shared the light and helped to promote suicide prevention. We would love you to join us in walking (or running) the 5km route this May. Take a look at some of our photographs from 2017 for some inspiration!
