APRIL 25 is a date that should be firmly marked on your calendars for the ‘Walk 4 Life’ event that will be taking place at 8pm leaving from Tralee Bay Wetlands.

The 5km walk is being held to raise awareness about mental health and suicide awareness/prevention (click here to read our previous story on the event).

New details about the day have come to light about the event that promises to be a very special occasion for all involved.

There will be a registration night for those who have not yet done so on the night of April 24 (the night before the walk) from 6-9pm.

People who have registered will be able to come down on that night as well to collect their registration packs.

All of this will take place from 6-9pm in the signposted ‘Aras An Phobail’ building on Dean’s Lane building near the library here in town.

Registration packs for the event will cost €10 and will consist of a tee light, ‘Walk 4 Life’ wristbands, green ribbon, high visibility jacket and a flyer that has the information the help available to people in Kerry.

On the night of the walk (April 25) the sound of African drums will be there to greet you at the start of the walk as everyone gets ready to set off.

Afterwards you can expect to hear the both dulcet tones of the local KDYS rap group as they perform their songs for the ‘Walk 4 Life’ campaign, and those present will hear from a guest speaker who will be giving a short talk on mental health and suicide awareness.
