5K Run/walk

5K Run/walk

Please remember Sunday, 1st September at 2p.m. will be the start of our second 5km event at Streete Parish Park Complex. Any queries please call Declan or Tracey on 087 9287129. All proceeds from this event will go towards reducing the debt on the walkway, so we depend on support. It will help greatly if you pass on the word. We will have some entertainment for the children and a prize for first mother pushing a child in a buggy to finish. This year the finishing line will be at the Park and not as last year so please help make it a fun day. Even if you are unable for the 5km please come along and support us.
