BIRTHDAY FUNDRAISER FOR PIETA HOUSE

Pieta House is a charity that is very close to my heart. Many of you will know that myself and my family have faced mental health challenges over the last number of years. Pieta provides free therapy to those struggling with their mental health and those bereaved by suicide. They rely on the generosity of the public whose donations and fundraising make up over 80% of their income. It is proven that exercise benefits mental health which is why I have decided to partake in a week of physical activity challenges to help raise some vital funds and awareness for this incredible service. I'm celebrating my 32nd birthday on May 3rd and I've decided to undertake a daily physical activity challenge starting on the day of my birthday and finishing on May 9th, which would have been the day that Pieta would have ran their annual 'Darkness into Light' fundraiser. To mark this day, I will finish my week of challenges off by attempting to complete 100,000 steps in 24hours, all within my 2km radius. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Pieta House have had to cancel the 'Darkness into Light' walk this year which is going to have a massive impact on their funds and consequently their services. There has been an increase in the number of people relying on their services due to current circumstances also. I know many people are out of work due to the pandemic and that there are lots of other fundraisers going on currently, but any donation no matter how big or small would make a big difference and would be greatly appreciated
