5km Fun Run - 21st June

The Seatown Road Event Planning group, who were ably supported by Saoirse Kavanagh, organised a 5km Fun Run in ALSAA on Friday 22nd June.  This fundraiser was carefully planned over the last 4-6 weeks and everything went very smoothly on the day.  They even organised beautiful sunshine for the day!

It is tradition at Seatown Road to run this annual fun run and the charity is selected by the group that organise the event.  In the past we have donated to Special Olympics Ireland, Down Syndrome Ireland, Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Temple Street Children’s Hospital.  We have always valued the opportunity for the people we support to be seen as contributors to charitable causes, not as the recipients of same.

This year’s worthy cause is the Peter McVerry Trust who do such great work with those affected by homelessness.

There were over 50 participants from Seatown Road and The Mall   They didn’t let us down when it came to raising money and we are delighted to say that €2,972 was raised.

We had quite a few parents turn up as cheerleaders too.

Please see some photos below that we hope give you a flavour of the day and how well it went.
