AWARE Omagh 5K Mood Walk 2019
About the Event
Join us for this fantastic day of family fun for all ages for our annual Mood Walk! We are so incredibly overwhelmed and thankful to the number of people that show up every year to help us raise money for AWARE at this special event, enabling us to continue the work and support we give to those living with depression and bi-polar. Last year we had over 600 people, adults and children, participate. Wow! And this year we are so excited to see some familiar faces and hopefully some new ones!
Plans for the day: The day will begin at 1.30pm for registration and festival fun meeting at Community House Market Street (BT78 1DP), a warm-up will commence at 2.45pm, and we will begin the 5K Mood Walk at 3pm sharp. So get the date saved on your family calendar! We will meet you at registration when you can collect your t-shirt and then again at the finishing line where you will receive your medal to commend you on your completed Mood Walk.
This is a family friendly event and all dogs are welcome on leads.
