Darkness Into Light | Newcastle 2020

When: Postponed until further notice.

Where: Bathers Way, Merewether Beach. Newcastle. NSW. 2300

Event Description: 

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 House. From small beginnings, the movement has grown year on year and in 2019 over 200,000 people took part in 200 locations, in 16 countries across 5 continents. 

On Saturday, 9th of May, hundreds of thousands of people around the world come together to walk from darkness of the night into the light of morning to help in the global fight against suicide prevention. 

Symbolically the walk represents the therapeutic counseling journey. It sparks conversations about the importance of mental health and well-being in our lives. 

batyr are excited to be involved again in 2020 which is our 2nd year being support by the Newcastle DIL Walk with all funds raised through registration fees being split between us and Pieta House in Ireland.
