The tenth annual Aware Harbour2Harbour Walk takes place on St. Patrick’s Day, Tuesday March 17th next and Irish Ferries have announced their support for the event at a special photocall on board the magnificent cruise ferry Ulysses. Senator David Norris and Irish Rugby international Fergus McFadden were on board to encourage people to sign up now for the Harbour2Harbour Walk on aware.ie.
Expressing Irish Ferries’ pleasure in being one of the event’s patrons, the company’s Marketing Manager, Daragh O’Reilly said ‘the Harbour2Harbour Walk takes participants along one of Europe’s most scenic seafront routes and into the Dublin Port area, through which so much of Ireland’s tourism and trade traffic flows. It is an exciting way to mark St. Patrick’s Day and a delightful day out for Dubliners of all ages, be they runners, joggers, walkers or strollers.’
Amo Sayed, Head of Business Development and Fundraising with Aware highlighted the importance of the event for the organisation: “Each year in excess of 1,000 people take part to raise funds for Aware’s work. In 2014, €40,000 was raised from the event. We are delighted to have the support of Irish Ferries this year, as well as Dublin Port Company who are kindly providing a fun-filled halfway point at Berth 18, Dublin Port, close to the Eastlink toll bridge. It is fitting that both are supporting the Harbour2Harbour Walk given that the event showcases the beauty of Dublin Bay.”
Online registration for the Harbour2Harbour Walk is now open. Participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship from colleagues, friends and family, with all funds raised going to Aware’s nationwide depression support, education and information services. The Aware Harbour2Harbour Walk 2015 is proudly supported by Irish Ferries, Dublin Port Company and 98FM.
