The Tipperary GAA County Health and Wellbeing Committee would like to encourage GAA clubs to become involved in the 2018 Pieta House Darkness into Light campaign which commences in the small hours of May 12th and finishes as the sun is rising.
Applications for new venues for 2018 have closed, however we would strongly encourage clubs to become involved by joining community groups and other organisations who are running the event in their vicinity. Clubs might consider encouraging all adult members or just an adult team to participate and to invite family and friends to join them.
Pieta House is a non-profit organisation providing a specialised treatment programme for people who have suicidal ideation or who participate in self-harming behaviours. Pieta relies on public donations to continue this important work. By participating in their flagship fundraiser Darkness into Light in one of the many venues in Tipperary your club will be helping the wider community to support Pieta House and help it to continue to provide free counselling sessions for people who are in suicidal stress, people who are self-harming & those who have been recently bereaved by suicide.
