2,000 people are expected to walk from Howth Harbour to Dun Laoghaire Harbour (or reverse) this St Patrick’s Day.
The 13th annual Harbour2Harbour Walk will raise vital funds for mental health organisation Aware.
The event was launched this morning by Dublin footballer Bernard Brogan and RTE presenter Mary Kennedy. The Harbour2Harbour Walk will see participants take on the 16.2 mile/26km challenge, with the option of starting from Howth Harbour or Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
Suitable for most fitness levels, the walk will take people along the scenic Dublin Bay route with a ‘Halfway Hooley’ hosted at Dublin Port Company’s newly opened public plaza.
You can register now at aware.ie/events at a cost of €25 per person. All funds raised will go towards Aware’s nationwide support, education and information services.
Gerry O’Brien, Head of Fundraising at Aware commented: “The Harbour2Harbour Walk offers the perfect excuse to get friends and family together to mark St Patrick’s Day in a fun and healthy way, while also raising money for a great cause. As a result of this and other fundraising efforts, Aware is able to provide support services for individuals and families impacted by depression or bipolar disorder, as well as delivering free mental health education programmes to adults and senior cycle students throughout the country.”
The Aware Harbour2Harbour Walk 2018 is proudly supported by Dublin Port Company and Dublin’s 98FM.
