Dunlavin goes pink for marathon and car wash

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - PICTURES - By MYLES BUCHANAN

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.
