Hi There, My name is Mark Eaton, What started out with getting in the water one day has now lead me into doing nearly a full 365 days consecutively getting in the water.
Last year, I had returned home from Australia and felt it was cut short and my way to deal with this was by getting in for a swim one day! I got in the next day as well and one week went by then I hit 50 days in the water and thought could I hit 100 days and I just kept going with it each day which leads me to today where I am on day 340 (dip 340) as I write this
Getting into the water helped me with my own mental health back then and each and every day since, absolutely loving it, the feeling after it, the people you meet and connect with, not just physical benefits but also mental health benefits from getting a swim in
What I'd like to do to mark this occasion is raise funds for 2 charities, One Local Charity KYSS (Kinsale Youth Support Services) & Pieta House whom both provide excellent services to help those who need it most, promoting positive mental health, and helping those with suicidal distress
If you can support in any way possible I would appreciate your help and even come join me for a dip any of the days just reach out to me on social media
On the 26th November 2021 will be the full 365 consecutive days getting in the water, come join me and lets bring people together and help those in need
Thank you for all the support and meeting people throughout the past year from all the dips, lets help each other even more
Keep dipping, stay safe, be seen and enjoy your swims
