Sporting clubs and groups of individuals bound together by the strength of teams will rise in the middle of tonight and walk from Darkness into Light in support of Pieta House.
The campaign has been supported by Electric Ireland since 2013 and the depth of engagement has earned it recognition as the European Sponsorship of the Year in 2017.
This year over 250,000 people are expected to walk at over 200 venues around the country.
“At Electric Ireland we have always believed in bringing light to dark places,” said Executive Director Marguerite Sayers.
“For the past seven years we have proudly supported the Darkness Into Light event and over that time we have worked, with Pieta to grow Darkness into Light into the global event it is today.”
“We believe that when we harness our people and our energy, we have the power to bring hope to those who need it most – Darkness into Light exemplifies this. But there is more to do. Electric Ireland’s people, across all departments, are so proud to be part of this important campaign and we look forward to walking in solidarity with all of the Darkness into Light participants tonight.”
It’s a special event for a cause that touches so many of us.
We have given a takeover of the Sport for Business Daily Digest today. We will be walking. We hope you will take the time to do so too.
Registration and more information is available at www.darknessintolight.ie
