Walk Dublin Bay for Aware this St. Patrick’s Day
Sign Up Now for the Aware Harbour2Harbour Walk
Supported by Robert Roberts
If you’re looking for something different to do this St. Patrick’s Day, why not take part in the annual Aware Harbour2Harbour Walk on Saturday 17th March next. Not only will you reap the benefits of being physically active – which can have a very positive effect on mental health and wellbeing – you will also be participating in a fun and worthwhile event, which last year saw over 700 walkers turning out to participate in the walk to support Aware’s work. Online registration and more information is now available at www.aware.ie
Dr. Claire Hayes, Clinical Director of Aware points to the positive impact of taking part in an event like the Harbour Walk: “Exercise helps to keep our bodies healthy. It can also have a positive impact on our mind, improve our mood, and help us cope better with life’s challenges.” The 16.2 mile route takes in the beautiful surrounds of Dublin Bay, and participants can choose to walk from Dun Laoghaire Harbour to Howth Harbour or from Howth to Dun Laoghaire, with both options starting at 10.30am. The Harbour Walk is an ideal event to do with friends or family, or as an individual challenge.
This year’s Harbour Walk is supported by one of Aware’s long time supporters Robert Roberts Tea & Coffee. Tara Cronin, Brand Manager, says the company is proud of its association with Aware: “The work done by Aware has increased in importance over the past decade and the support that the organisation gives is invaluable to many Irish people. We are sure that this event which takes place on Ireland’s national day will be even more successful in 2012 and we look forward to being involved.”
Registration for the event is €15 for an individual or €25 for two adults, with under-16s free, and you can register online now at www.aware.ie. Participants are also asked to raise sponsorship for their efforts, all of which will go to Aware’s support, information and education services.
