Petermarkathon 2015

2018-04-04


The Petermarkathon set to raise funds for AWARE!

The Petermarkathon is coming to a salon near you from October 23rd – 26th and this year will support the work of Aware throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Beat the Blues in the Republic of Ireland and Mood Matters in Northern Ireland are programmes run by the charities for teenagers helping them to recognise the importance of looking after their mental health and providing them with the skills to deal with concerns in their life and improve resilience. Aware delivers these programmes to tens of thousands of young people each year.

This year, with your help, we want to be able to help Aware deliver these vital messages to more and more teenagers across the country. Peter Mark salons nationwide will be taking part – bake sales, dress up parties, cycle-athons, 80's fancy dress, even a Dolly Parton Day – you name it, it's going on at a salon near you! To see how you can get involved and raise funds for Aware, just pop into your local Peter Mark. Every cent, euro, penny or pound you donate will all go to Aware to help them as they try to help Ireland's teenagers become more aware of the importance of looking after their mental health.
