Darkness Into Light 2022

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. Electric Ireland is proud to support Pieta and Darkness Into Light for the tenth year, we’re looking forward to seeing people come together with a renewed energy as every person has the power to be a light against the dark. As the world reopens, Darkness Into Light will return with its organised walks at 177 venues in over 17 countries across five continents, beginning in darkness at sunrise and continuing for 5km through to dawn to symbolise the journey from despair to hope.

Sign up at and take part in any way you can, whether that's walking, running, hiking, biking, or joining us at one of our organised gatherings. Every sign, every step, every sunrise shared makes a valuable contribution to raise vital funds for Pieta's life-saving services for those in suicidal distress and bereavement through suicide.
