Darkness into Light is an international event to raise funds and awareness around suicide and self-harm organized by Dublin based charity Pieta House and its partners. Together, with a dedicated organizing committee consisting of individuals from the Irish community, Chicago Irish Immigrant Support collaborated with Pieta house to host the very first Darkness into Light 5k walk/run in Chicago.
On May 9th at 4.30am we were delighted to be joined by 120 brave souls whose dedication and commitment could not be dampened by the torrential rain that poured down throughout the entire event. Despite the soggy conditions, participants were in good spirits as they walked and ran the 5k route along the lakefront, knowing that they were taking part in something very special.
Chicago Irish Immigrant Support would like to thank all those that came out to support the Irish community and to start a meaningful conversation around suicide and self-harm. Special thanks is also due to the wonderful organizing committee who put in many, many hours of work to make the Darkness into Light event the success it was.
