Darkness Into Light is an Annual 5k walk/run in Aid of Pieta House. On Saturday, 12th May a community will gather at Dromore West Community Centre and walk in support of positive mental health.
Many of us walk every year in various locations, but this year we can make this a truly unique experience with family and friends in our very own community of Dromore West. Together we stand as a whole, a community, and shine as a beacon of light and hope to support those who may be struggling and in remembrance of those we have lost.
Join us in what will be a remarkable day for all and please help by sharing the event and inviting your friends to help enhance the walk.
