THE organisers of this year’s Darkness Into Light event in Strabane are urging locals to register online as soon as possible.
Set to take place on Saturday, May 11, Darkness Into Light will see hundreds of people take part in a 5k walk around Strabane to raise funds and awareness for Pieta House whilst also supporting those affected by suicide and self harm.
This will be the third year of the increasingly popular and emotive event in Strabane. Last year there were approximately 600 people involved and the event promises to be bigger and better this year.
The organisers also emphasised that participants are welcome, not only from Strabane but from the surrounding areas as well.
“Due to the increasing popularity of this event we are urging people who wish to participate this year to register online before March 31 to avail of the discounted early bird rates,” spokesperson for the event, Debbie Deans said.
“Registration numbers are extremely high and this year’s event promises to be even bigger than before.
“Unlike previous years there will be no registration the morning of the walk.”
Please contact Debbie Deans on 07860803643 or Ciaran McLaughlin on 07920429201 with any queries in relation to registration.
