This St Patrick’s Day is going to look a little different. At a time when we need to stay apart, it is important that we still feel connected to one another. This March, we are asking you to join people all over Ireland and come together ‘virtually’, for the Aware Paddy's Day Walk in support of mental health. As we mark one year of living with Covid-19, Aware continues to see a sustained increase in demand for our services.
We all know fresh air, nature and movement all offer a host of benefits for your mental wellbeing. So we're encouraging you to get out and about, with your household or bubble, and do something good for you, and for others! This is a virtual event, so you can take part in your locality. You can choose the distance and the route, start from your front door, do laps of your garden, it's your call.
All participants will receive a set of green shoelaces so you can ‘lace up’ for the Aware Paddy’s Day Walk and show your support for mental health. Whether you go with your household or bubble, or on your own, or with your dog, we would love to see your photos. Don't forget to spread the word and encourage your family and friends to get involved and use #awarepaddysdaywalk on social media.
Please keep yourself and others safe and abide by all government guidelines in relation to Covid-19.
