Training Entrepreneur Newbies (TEN ), a group of adult learners engaged on a QQI-6 entrepreneurship training course run by Athlone Training Centre, have organised a walk of the Greenway to raise awareness of suicide and the supports that are available.
The walk will also support awareness of the HSE’s ‘Assist & Safetalk’ training programmes available.
The walk will begin at Donegans Spar Shop, Garrycastle, at 2pm on Sunday, April 9. Those participating can walk whatever distance they choose to. There will be distance markers up to 10km along the Greenway (Old Rail Trail ) so participants can challenge themselves.
Authorised volunteers from Pieta House will be in attendance with collection boxes to accept your donations and contributions at the meeting point. Car parking is available beside Spar Athlone Training Centre.
Those attending are advised to bring suitable walking attire, while waterproofs and hi-vis vests may also be necessary, depending on the weather.
