As many of you know, I am not much of a walker, but then again, I probably never had a chance to walk for a good cause.
On Saturday the 06th of September, I am doing a 5KM walk in Odd Shoes (yep) in aid of Pieta House, the Centre for the Prevention of Self-Harm or Suicide, and St. Patrick’s Mental Health Foundation, the official fundraising arm of St. Patrick’s University Hospital, Ireland’s largest independent mental health service provider.
This year, my company, Unity Technology Solutions, are aiming to raise €10,000 euro in aid of both charities.
I don’t normally hit people up for donations, or generally anything on the internet, but I am asking you, my friends to Donate what you can to this cause and I will walk my heart out for Yee. If you decide to donate, just tap my name into the message field if you want.
Mental health is a cause close to my heart, and times are hard for everyone, but especially hard on people who suffer from mental problems. We all have hard days where we feel down, and some days are just miserable here in Ireland, but many feel it harder and cannot shake it. It is charities like these that are fighting to raise awareness of mental problems and help those in need. This country’s government is more comfortable dealing with concerts than putting support where it is needed, and it is up to us, the people of this country to help where we can.
