Caroline Corkery and renowned long-distance swimmer Elaine Burrows Dillane promoting the 31 day January challenge for#positivementalhealth 2021.

WE haven’t even begun to tackle the turkey, ham and all the rest of the goodies Christmas brings but it’s also the time of year to think about a healthy start to the new year.

And as well as washing the hands, facemarks and social distancing, staying healthy and building up the immune system is vital to keeping COVID-19 at bay until the vaccine comes.

Then it’s definitely worth taking on the annual 31 day January challenge for#positivementalhealth 2021 and you’ll also be helping three great causes.

The beneficiaries this year are Alzheimers Ireland, Rise4Daithi and Baile Mhuire Stroke Day Unit in Tralee.

Organised by Caroline Corkery and Colin ‘Poshey’ Aherne, the event promotes exercise, good mental health, fitness and well being where participants do an activity a day for 31 days — walk 30 mins one day, cycle the next day, swim, yoga, a fitness class etc — once you’re moving and being active it all counts.

It costs €35 which includes a finishers medal, finishers certificate plus cost of postage. The organisers have created a gofundme page where you can donate the €35 and then you have your name down for a medal.
