Donations From The Club
To Two Local Very Worthy Causes
Christine Murphy Reports
Every year we make a donation to a local worthy cause from the funds that we raise from our own 5 mile road race in May. This year we chose two recipients, Kieran O’Connor (Aghada) and Ella Dempsey (Ladysbridge). Both Ella and Kieran are currently battling Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare type of cancer that forms in the bone or soft tissue and the treatment plan of which has lead them both to travel abroad for treatment and hence undertake fundraising activities to support them and their families through this process.
Presentations of €500 were recently made to the Friends of Kieran support group and to Ella and her family. We wish both Ella and Kieran a speedy return to good health.
In a similar vein, the club is again supporting the Irish Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event taking place in Midleton CBS over 24 hours on 24-25 August. Last years’ event was an extremely rewarding experience for all who took part so we hope to see large numbers of our club members taking part again this year. We will be looking for volunteers to fill slots in the 24 hour relay and there will be also other options to support if you are unable to attend on the day. Further details to follow shortly.” Christine
