Posted by


THE launch of the 5k a day January challenge for positive mental health will take place in The Ashe Hotel on Tuesday, December 12 at 7pm.

Colin ‘Poshey’ Aherne.

Everyone is invited and people will have the chance to register for the event on the night. Last year, Tralee man Colin ‘Poshey’ Aherne’s efforts raised an amazing €5,722 for the Donal Walsh Livelife Foundation and Jigsaw Kerry as he took to the road every day to promote positive mental health.

This time he is encouraging people to get involved in the activity where the chosen charities are Donal Walsh #Livelife Foundation again, the Kerry Cork Health Link Bus and a donation to Make A Wish.

“So each day you do an activity you donate €1 to the chosen charities,” said Poshey. “So if you complete the 31 days you donate €31 (donating is optional) being a part of the event and benefiting from the effects of excercise is the key. If you complete the 31 day Challenge and donate €31 you will receive a specially designed medal.”

The activity each day can involve a 5k walk/run, cycle/swim for 30 minutes, a yoga or Pilates or fitness class for 1 hour. For more information check out the Facebook page here
