Think Ahead To 5k A Day Charity Challenge In January

Posted by


HE raised thousands last year and now a Tralee man is asking people to make a commitment to get active for the month of January for great causes with the 5k A Day Challenge.

Last year, 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 year 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
