The Darkness into Light initiative began in 2009, when a bereaved couple in Dublin rose at 4 am to walk from darkness into dawn in memory of their son, who had been lost to suicide. The event has grown exponentially since then - from 400 people in Dublin's Phoenix Park to an event celebrated last year in over 145 towns and cities worldwide, with 180k participants.
This year will be the first time the Darkness into Light event is held in Belgium. The money raised at the event will help support Pieta House Ireland, and two Belgian organisations: Centrum ter preventie van zelfdoding and Centre du prévention du suicide, all dealing with mental health and suicide.
