#BoostYourAwareness Blitz

Cadbury Boost ambassadors, Alan Quinlan, Fiona Coghlan and Jordi Murphy, were joined today by Dave Kearney, to launch the first ever #BoostYourAwareness Touch Rugby Blitz, which will take place on Friday, 19th May, in Lansdowne Rugby Club.

The day-long event, which will raise in excess of €10,000 for Cadbury's charity partner Aware, will see 20 teams compete in the blitz - which aims to highlight and educate participants on the importance of maintaining positive mental health, by staying active.

Throughout the day, Cadbury Boost ambassadors, Jordi Murphy, Luke Fitzgerald, Alan Quinlan and Fiona Coghlan, will be on hand to coach teams, as they prepare for each game.

When not competing on the pitch, teams will have the opportunity to take part in a number of fun and educational activities, including Yoga and Pilates classes, Strength & Conditioning sessions, mental well-being talks from Aware, chill-out zones and lots more. The event will culminate with a barbeque, prize-giving ceremony and a special live broadcast of Newstalk's Off the Ball.

The #BoostYourAwareness Touch Rugby Blitz will host a total of 20 teams. Each team should consist of 8 to 12 players, with six players on the pitch at any one time - consisting of three female and three male players.
