Darkness Into Light was created in Dublin, Ireland in 2009 where 400 people set off to walk 5km to raise awareness in the global fight against suicide and self-harm. In 2019 over 200,000 people took part in 150 locations, in 16 countries across 5 continents.
The Healthy Minds Algarve Association has brought this event to the Algarve for the first time and they hope to invest the monies raised into local mental health services and clinics for children and adults across the Algarve.
The 5km walk will take place on Saturday 9th May 2020 at 5am departing from The Shack Bar, Quinta do Lago – where all countries will walk into the sunrise at the same time.
Registrations for the event are opening on 25 February 2020 – to book your place visit www.darknessintolight.ie/algarve or www.healthymindsalgarve.org
Keep up to date with the route, ticket information and details via our social media pages - darknessintolightalgarve
Ticket Prices are available on the websites and include a DIL t-shirt, water and breakfast is optional at the end of the walk for a small donation to the charity.
Our request is simple – Whatever your age or situation, walk with us, talk with us, so that together we can create a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.
