‌In a‌ssisting groups with their 5 week programme Mayo Sports Partnership have developed some information resources on lifestyle, exercise, diet / nutrition etc and also some posters st that communities can advertise their campaign locally. Also available is a 21 day walking challenge card which people can use to record and monitor their progress during the campaign. The 5 week programme will culminate with 5K Fun Run / Walk in each of the 5 locations in Ballina, Belmullet, Castlebar, Claremorris and Westport on Saturday 21st February.
