June Curtin, founder of renowned Clare swimming tribe, Snámhaí Sásta, today launched The Big Splash for Aware, urging people all over Ireland to challenge themselves to a cold-water dip on Saturday 23rd September in support of mental health.
Participants are invited to take part at their favourite swimming spots, whether that’s the sea, a local lake, swimming pool or river. For those who don’t live near a suitable body of water, a freezing cold shower or ice bath are also options!
Register today at www.aware.ie/splash at a cost of €23 per person and receive a blue swimming hat featuring the Aware sun icon, symbolizing hope to proudly demonstrate your support on the day.
The Big Splash for Aware will raise vital funds to ensure the organisation can continue to deliver its free support, education and information services nationwide for people impacted by depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder, directly or as a loved one.
If taking part in an open body of water, please don’t go alone and follow the relevant safety advice that can be found at www.watersafety.ie.
