Carrigaline Gets Ready To Walk
Writes Jack White
It is the first time the walk will be happening in Carrigaline, thanks to the organising committee chaired by Colman Garvey and it was officially launched in March by Munster and Irish rugby star Peter O’Mahony.
The walk or run will take place on the 7th of May, at 4.15am and comprises of a 5km walk encompassing a loop around Carrigaline. Refreshments for all registered participants are sponsored by Barry Collins SuperValu.
Pieta House Suicide and Self Harm Crisis Centre work with the most vulnerable in society who may be suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts and would encourage all members of the community to support this charity through this unique walk, Darkness Into Light.
Darkness Into Light is the flagship fundraising and awareness event for Pieta House, and without local support, they could not have helped so many people in suicidal distress and engaging in self-harm over the last nine years. Pieta House has nearly 180 staff and they have welcomed in excess of 22,000 people struggling with depression in their nine centres up and down the country since they first opened their doors a decade ago.
