All posts are moderated and IN Chicago ultimately decides what is posted. No product sales pitches please!

    Chicago Irish Immigrant Support is partnering with Pieta House - a Dublin based charity - to host the Darkness into Light 5k walk/run on Saturday, 9th May at Diversey Harbor, along the Chicago lakefront. Pieta House has used the Darkness into Light event as their flagship event for raising both funds and awareness. This event symbolizes the journey of those who are feeling suicidal from the darkness of despair into the bright hope of a new day.

    In Chicago, Darkness into Light is taking place Saturday May 9th at 4:30am. We will be gathering at Diversey Harbor (the boat launch parking lot). The price to join the run is $30 for adults and $20 for students and unemployed.

    We are inviting the entire Irish community to get involved in Darkness into Light. Registration to participate is now open! We are also looking for sponsors to help us offset the significant costs of staging the event (event permits, equipment rental, parking fees etc.). Anyone interested in participating or a sponsorship opportunity should contact Chicago Irish Immigrant Support at 776-282-8445 or visit
