In 2021 we saw our month-long sea swimming fundraiser challenge for our services called Coldtober go national, so all of Ireland could take part!  

Twenty+ different locations around Ireland saw participants take part by going for a swim every day for this 31 day challenge in their local sea swimming area.

Thank you to the 490 participants from 21 counties across Ireland who took part in Coldtober 2021!

We are so excited to open registrations for Coldtober 2022, our annual fundraising event for the month of October, each day we invite you to join us in this month-long sea swimming fundraiser challenge to help us get one step closer to meeting our mission; to support children, young people and adults with their mental health.

Follow the journey on our social media pages, and tag us on Instagram @HelplinkMentalHealthTwitter @HelplinkMH, and Facebook @HelplinkMentalHealth.

We also have a Coldtober 2022 Facebook Group.

Don't forget to use our hashtag #Coldtober!

The first 500 participants to register for the challenge will receive a Coldtober Portwest beanie from our sponsor Portwest Ireland, and the delicious, unique Solaris Tea to warm you up after your sea swim.

For anyone who would like to take part but isn’t near a sea swimming spot, you can take part by having a 30-second cold shower each day!
