DIL, one of the biggest global charity events of the year, returns in Northern Ireland for One Sunrise Together with organisers, Pieta, asking people to sign up and mark the event with an activity of their choice – be that walking, running, hiking, biking or simply sharing their sunrise.

These activities, carried out within Covid guidelines, will help shine a light on suicide and self-harm while raising vital funds for the prevention and bereavement services provided by 17 partner charities in Northern Ireland as well as Pieta, the founding charity of DIL.

The local partner charities are as follows: 
Causeway – Causeway Community Rescue Service/Samaritans
Ballycastle – Solas Moyle

A spokesperson for Darkness into Light said: “The safety of our supporters is our highest priority, so we ask all participants to ensure that they strictly adhere to the government’s Covid 19 guidelines at all times while taking part in the event. 
“All those walking or running for the event should ensure that their route is properly lit at the time they plan to take part, and that there are no hazards.

“Whatever your planned activity for Darkness Into Light this year, please make sure that all equipment is in good condition, that weather conditions are suitable for the activity you are undertaking, and do not take part in any high-risk activities alone or without the proper support and training. 
“All participants in Darkness Into Light 2021 take part at their own risk and should be appropriately insured.”
