Dunlavin goes pink for marathon and car wash
DUNLAVIN GAA grounds took on a distinctive pink hue recently in preparation for a fundraising marathon and a car wash.
Participants in the marathon were asked to run, walk or even crawl in a show of support for the event, all the while dressed in pink attire.
The previous day Orna Cunningham Doyle also ran her own 50k, while wearing ‘Running for Angela’ single to signify who she was helping to raise funds for.
The singlet also bore the name of the various local businesses who offered their support, including main sponsors Morrins Centra.
Afterwards, she thanked everyone for all their support, including Adrienne, her brother Oran, who ran his first marathon, Pat and Colm, who also ran, and her sister-in-law Laura.
The marathon was followed up by a car wash manned by members of Dunlavin Fire Brigade who dealt with a steady stream of vehicles making their way into the local GAA grounds.
Others who were unable to attend made donations instead.
