Off the booze and on the ball

10 January, 2012

A new health initiative has been launched by the GAA in association with the HSE. The requirement is for people to abstain from alcohol for a period of one month. In a change to the normal health advise "Off the booze and on the ball" offers players and community members the opportunity to raise money for their local club. Midleton GAA have taken the decision to include Midleton Hospital as a joint recipient of funds raised from the initiative.
The challenge was extended personally by Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, Criostóir Ó Cuana, who launched the event with Minister of State at the Department of Health, Róisín Shortall in Croke Park on November 22. The initiative is being driven by the Association's Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Programme - a joint initiative with the HSE that aims to reduce the harm caused by the misuse of alcohol and other substances.

Our Club intend to run the event from Monday 16th of January to Sunday 19th of February.
It is hoped that all adult players will take part and will be approached by team management over the next few days.
For those interested in taking part in the event you can download your sponsorship form by clicking HERE
Forms must be signed by either Club Secretary - Vincent Reddy or Alcohol and Substance Abuse programme (ASAP) officer - Pearse McCarthy in order to collect on behalf or the Club and the Hospital.

This is a great opportunity for both Club Members and the Community in general to get involved in a wonderful health initiative.

Details will be posted over the next week in relation to fundraising events for individuals and families alike.
