THE NINTH Wick­low Sum­mer Fam­ily Walk was of­fi­cially launched by Mick O’Dwyer who was ac­com­pa­nied by the Sam Maguire Cup.

No doubt Micko will be hop­ing to be reac­quainted with the cup some time later in the year, but all minds last Mon­day in the Leitrim Lounge fo­cused on the Pat Law­less or­gan­ised walk.

GAA fans were cer­tainly well catered for at the launch, which was also at­tended by star play­ers Leighton Glynn and Ciaran Hy­land.

Also speak­ing along with Micko were Kevin De­laney of the Ir­ish Can­cer So­ci­ety and Dr. Bren­dan Cud­dihy from the Wick­low Hospice Foun­da­tion.

This year’s 10K walk starts on Sun­day June 13 at the Leitrim Lounge and trav­els through the streets of Wick­low, be­fore re­turn­ing back to the start­ing point. Af­ter the walk a head shave and leg wax will also take place.

The walk is in aid of Wick­low Hospice Foun­da­tion and the Ir­ish Can­cer So­ci­ety.

To date €165,000 has been raised from the pre­vi­ous eight walks along with var­i­ous chal­lenges.
