Registrations for Coldtober 2022, the annual fundraising event held by Help Link Mental Health during the month of October, are now open.

Participants are invited to join this month-long sea swimming fundraiser challenge to help the team get one step closer to meeting their mission; to support children, young people and adults with their mental health.

“Coldtober allowed us to hire a new play therapist to meet the demand for play therapy appointments, it has resulted in a whopping 42% increase in the service in the 4 months following Coldtober compared to the previous year Play therapy supports children age 3-12 in Galway and Castlebar and allows children the time and space to work out what may be troubling them, supporting each child to fulfil their full potential” Lochlann Scott, CEO

Follow the journey on social media pages, and tag them on Instagram @HelplinkMentalHealth, Twitter @HelplinkMH and Facebook @HelplinkMentalHealth. You can also join the Coldtober 2022 Facebook Group. Don’t forget to use their hashtag #Coldtober!

The first 500 participants to register for the challenge will receive a Coldtober Portwest beanie from sponsor Portwest Ireland, and the delicious, unique Solaris Tea to warm you up after your sea swim.

For anyone who would like to take part but isn’t near a sea swimming spot, you can take part by having a 30-second cold shower each day!
