‘Off the Booze and On the Ball’, was recently launched in Croke Park. Now entering its third year the challenge with a healthy twist invites participants to abstain from alcohol for the month of January and in doing so seek sponsorship to go towards their local GAA club. The objective of the challenge is to extend a positive message about a healthier lifestyle and participants are encouraged to engage in some new exercises that help them reach their recommended weekly activity levels during the month, and hopefully beyond.
I would definitely urge our players and members to get involved in the campaign. It is an excellent opportunity for club members to start the year in a healthy manner. The GAA will be promoting the Challenge through their Facebook and Twitter accounts and will be offering participants support and incentives throughout the campaign period.
