Darkness into Light Challenge 2021

We invite you to join Pieta at sunrise on May 8th 2021 for a special Darkness Into Light Sunrise. Wherever you are in the world, let's walk together under one sunrise, holding in our hearts all those impacted by suicide and self-harm.
Each and every year, your vital support enables Pieta and our partner charities across the globe to change the lives of thousands of people struggling with suicidal thoughts, or self-harming.

Since 2012 when our first international Darkness Into Light event took place in London, over €3.5 million has been raised for our mental health partner charities around the world.
Sign up for a special Darkness Into Light sunrise today, and take part locally with your loved ones.

This year, we are asking all of more our adventurous supporters to don their cycling helmets, dust off their hiking boots and get involved in the Darkness Into Light Challenge. Sign up for free, and fundraise to support Pieta and your local partner charity by getting involved in your favourite activity, in your local area.

Get together with friends and family (near and far) to create a virtual team, or get out there by yourself to become the Darkness Into Light hero we always knew you were!
