A charity walk aimed at destigmatising suicide and mentalheal issues
The first Darkness Into Light walk took place in Dublin in 2009, when a bereaved family, who had lost their son to suicide, walked with a group of 400 people in the very early morning from the darkness of night into the dawn, to symbolise the hope and healing that can come with the light of a new day and to raise awareness of suicide. Since then the event has developed into a global movement, being held in over 150 venues in Ireland and around the world, bringing together more than 200,000 people across five continents to help destigmatise suicide and allow people to talk more openly about mental health issues.
This year will mark the second edition of Darkness Into Light in Luxembourg.
By signing up to walk for the next edition of Darkness Into Ligt Luxembourg you will be helping to raise funds for three very worthwhile organisations: the Service Information et Prévention of La Ligue, Kanner-Jugendtelefon, and SOS Détresse, an anonymous and confidential helpline, — both in Luxembourg — and Pieta House in Ireland, the organiser of this international event.
Darkness Into Light Luxembourg 2020 has the support and patronage of Her Royal Highness the Grand Duchess, as well as the Irish Ambassador to Luxembourg, Peadar Carpenter, thus making it a truly European event.
The 5 km walk, starting at 5:00 in the morning on 9 May 2020, will depart from and finish at Centre Culturel Tramsschapp, 49 Rue Ermesinde, 1469 Luxembourg
