Wednesday, 19th April, 2017 1:01am

Darkness into Light this year takes place on 6 May, when thousands of people will walk or run together into the dawn to raise funds for Pieta House.

“Darkness Into Light is a movement against suicide. Money raised helps keep Pieta House’s life-saving services free and helps us to broaden our services so that we reach those who need us,” said Brian Higgins, CEO, Pieta House.

Events will take place in Galway in An Cheathrú Rua, An Spidéal, Ballinasloe, Ballygar, Clifden, Galway City, Glenamaddy, Inis Meain, Inis Oirr, Inishbofin, Inis Mor, Kinvara, Loughrea, Oranmore, Portumna, and Tuam.

Galway City’s 5km walk/run takes place on 6 May at 4.15am from Leisureland, Salthill. Last year over 5,000 people took part in the event, raising over €130,000.

This year’s pop up shop for registration and T-Shirt pick up will be open on Fridays and Saturdays on 21-22 April and 28-29 April from 12noon-6pm upstairs in the new entrance to the Eyre Square Shopping Centre.
