South Sligo AC an­nual 5k Fun Run on St Stephen’s Day

The Sligo Champion - - CHRISTMAS FOCUS ON TUBBERCURRY -

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.
