Darkness to Light
On 12th May as part of the Young Social Innovators programme Rang Niamh TY participated in 5km charity walk “Darkness to Light” in the Phoenix Park. The walk was organised by Pieta House, a centre that specialises in the prevention of self-harm and suicide. It started at 4am in the dark and finished in the bright as dawn was rising. The event is described as a 'symbolic and beautiful event' and marks the recent upsurge in suicides and the hope of trying to stop it, or reduce it. The students raised €1,000 for Pieta House. Marie Peelo a representative from Pieta house accepted the cheque on the night of their graduation and the students made a video diary of their experience. To view click on Darkness to Light above.
