Ballymahon 5k event for Crumlin

Ballymahon 5k event for Crumlin

Ballymahon Friends of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin launched their 2017 fundraising campaign in Skelly’s Bar, Ballymahon recently. 

The group announced the launch of its raffle and the return of the highly successful 5k crawl/walk/run which proved so popular last year if the huge turnout was anything to go by.

 Both events will take place on Saturday, June 10. The walk will commence at 12 noon with registration at 11.30am. The draw will take place later that night in Skelly’s Bar, Ballymahon, at 10.30pm. 

A spokesperson for the group said, “If last year’s response is anything to go by, we are hopeful of a great response to this year’s events. I think when the charity involves children, people are thankfully more inclined to put their hands in their pockets and support these events. Especially as we have local children availing of the services of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin”.

The group has a Facebook page “Ballymahon Friends of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin” and you can keep up to date with all activities there.  

The group are always looking for people to help out by selling tickets, sponsoring prizes and helping out on the day of the walk so anyone that wishes to be involved should contact the group through its Facebook Page.
