100km in a Month for LMHA – July 2022

Run, walk or crawl 100km in the month of July to raise vital funds for Limerick Mental Health Association

 

As you may be aware, the Covid-19 restrictions over the last 2 years have had a severe impact on charities and non-profit organisations who have been unable to carry out many of their traditional fundraisers so we have brought back an exciting “event” that we can run safely and bring people together in the form of a ‘100km in a Month Challenge’. 

We are launching this fundraising challenge to help us keep our vital services running safely and resume our person to person activities and groups again, to purchase more materials for our men’s shed and also to hire external facilitators that will provide training and support to our members in the form of Art Therapy, Music Therapy to name just a few.  

100km in a month might sound quite daunting but it’s just 3-4km a day and you can get the boost in on your kms whilst mowing the lawn, doing your grocery shopping or running around after the kids, you will be surprised how quickly it adds up!

This challenge is open to everyone (no matter what your level of fitness is) and it’s free to join and we want to get as many people as possible involved!

Those of you who joined us when we ran this challenge in 2020 will know what a wonderful and supportive group we had participating and what a rewarding and memorable experience it was to be a part of and we hope to see some of you again when we kick off on July 1st.

 

Once you are signed up we will send you an email with all the details you will need to participate. We will also send you an invitation to join our dedicated private facebook support group for this challenge where you will receive:

1. Advice on how to train & fundraise
2. Gain support, friendship & advice from runners, walkers and crawlers just like you
3. An open invitation to join our Walking Group every Monday at 12:15pm starting at Arthurs Quay Tourist Office for a leisurely strole around our beautiful city
