Ballycumber club notes

Pieta provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self harm and they also aim to raise awareness around mental health, especially during this time.

There are 48 half hour slots available and we ask participants to book their preferred time by text to 086 8158699.

The objective is to have runners/walkers on the route continuously during the 24 hours and at all times obeying Covid 19, Coronavirus guidelines on Social and Physical Distancing.
