“Comprehending such a tragic loss, so sudden and unfair, has felt to be impossible on some days. Some of us reached out to counselling services, which has proved invaluable in the healing process. Making time and talking to each other is what is getting us through this, just as we had done so many times with Mary Ellen. We wanted to do something in her memory so we decided on a walk, as it would join us all together as family, friends, community, to spend time with each other.
Inspired by her, we wanted this walk to be in memory of all our loved ones who have passed away, called “Walk with M.E.” We are so grateful to have such amazing counselling services, in the Downstrands Family Resource Centre available to help us, we want to help back, by fundraising for them and to raise awareness on mental health, considering Mary Ellen’s career and her belief in counselling, and how this service can help people smile again, this just seems the right idea to remember Mary Ellen.
We hope you’ll join us to support our “Walk with Me” on this St Stephen’s day the 26th of December from 12 noon to 5pm at Pearce Memorial Park Ardara, for a 5k walk or run to celebrate and to remember Mary Ellen, and our loved ones we have lost, and those we still have.
The proceeds from this walk will be divided between The Downstrands Family Resource Centre and The Kevin Bell Foundation.”
