South Sligo AC annual 5k Fun Run on St Stephen’s Day
SOUTH Sligo AC are delighted to announce that we will be hosting our annual 5K fun run on St. Stephen’s Day. This will be the 6 th year that the club has had the honour of hosting the event in aid SHOUT (Sligo Hospital Oncology Unit Trust) a very worthy charity in Sligo.
SHOUT is crucial to patients and their families in coping with the pressures of having Cancer. This is acknowledged by the people of South Sligo who come out every year to support our St. Stephen’s Day fun run. Last year saw just under 400 people take to the road and through their generous donations, we were able to continue to support SHOUT.
We will be presenting the Tom Normanly sheild to the first male junior home, in memory of our friend Tom Normanly. Tom was an avid supporter of the run and was too well aware of the support and facilities provided by SHOUT.
Walkers, runners, buggys, Santa Claus and his elves were all on display and got us all into the festive spirit. To encourage this we have a prize for the best festive dress or Christmas jumper. It is a firm favourite on the South Sligo AC events calendar. As the club is going from strength to strength every year, hosting this event allows us to live up to our ethos of giving back to the community.
We wish all our club members and our wider community a very merry Christmas and see you all St. Stephen’s Day. Registration from 11:30 in St. Brigid’s hall Tubbercurry. Run commences at 12pm. All donations to SHOUT.
