1,500 euros raised in 4 miles

Irish Women Run4Joe Cork Mini Marathon

The eight Irish women that I wrote about in our last post have done a truly magnificent job by completing the Evening Echo Ladies Cork City mini marathon and raising 1,500 euros for the European Leukodystrophy Association.

Thank you so much to Dee, Ger, Sharon, Maria, Deirdre, Kathy, Sinead, and Aideen, all of whom finished the 4 mile run in very respectable times.  Thanks too to a group of young people from Mayfield who designed and painted a beautiful banner for the day.  We know how much work and effort everyone has put in to raise so much money and to also raise awareness about Leukodystrophy.

Thanks also to the wonderful husbands, partners, cousins and friends who came out on the day to cheer and shout in support of the girls.  Although, my three year old nephew, Caolan, is still confused as to why his Mammy ran past and didn’t stop to say hello!

The Irish Run4Joe spirit of awareness building and fundraising will continue over the coming weeks thanks to Ciaran McNally and Paul Hickey who will run the Dublin City Marathon on 27th October 2008.  Thank you both so much – more info on all of this to come.
