For our second companywide charity initiative, the staff of McKesson Ireland came together to “March Miles for Aware” during the week of March 13th – 20th. McKesson Ireland consists of four leading Irish Healthcare Businesses that include United Drug, Lloyds Pharmacy, Median Healthcare and TCP Homecare. Aware was chosen as the new charity partner last October after a companywide vote and a period of research and consultation with staff.
Taking park in a 5Mile virtual walk/run, the McKesson Team took to the paths to get outside and enjoy some fresh air which as we all know is so vitally important for our mental health. Sadly 1 in 10 people in Ireland experience depression and in these difficult times, Aware need extra funds now more than ever. McKesson Ireland joined forces with Aware as their official charity partner in 2020 to offer as much support as they possibly could to help ensure Aware can continue to provide the vital, free services it provides for individuals and families impacted by depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.
The McKesson Ireland Team have so far raised a fantastic €21,492 for Aware and are still collecting donations for their current 5mile initiative. A big thank you to all who participated and took the time out of their week to complete their 5miles.
