The GAA' s new health and fundraising initiative Off the Booze and On the Ball will be launched by the Galway County Board tomorrow (Friday ) at 7.45pm in the Loughrea Hotel.
This fun challenge with a healthy and positive twist invites participants to abstain from alcohol for the month of January and, in doing so, seek sponsorship to go towards their local GAA club.
Participants will also be encouraged to engage in some new exercises that help them reach their recommended weekly activity levels during the month, and hopefully they will continue the routine for the entire new year.
All GAA clubs in the county are encouraged to recruit as many participants as possible - be it entire adult teams and panels, mentors and managers, or supporters and administrators.
As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle message among members, all participating clubs will be in with a chance to win a training session with one of Ireland's leading high performance coaches or one of the country's leading sports nutritionists in 2012.
Individuals and club members can sign up at www.gaa.ie/asap where they will receive a sponsorship card and an information pack containing details on health, exercise and diet. Contact Galway county ASAP officer Justin Campbell 086-8840469 for further details.
