Major fundraiser 2018 – Walk & Talk 24-hour Walkathon

The Club are hosting a 24-hour “Walk & Talk” Walkathon on the May bank holiday weekend. Full details are available on our post here, and on our special Facebook event.

24 leaders are been sought, so we have one team walking every hour. Teams can be made up of 5 to 15 people. Every team will be requested to bring a selected sum of money. Each hour will have a different theme (‘family’ or ‘fancy dress’, for example).

We hope the event will involve all in the parish, young and old. All proceeds from one designated hour will be given to a chosen charity, with every other club in the county being asked to nominate one person (and provide a donation) for that hour.

We will have a BBQ with all manner of refreshments and entertainment that evening for our participants, sponsors and supporters to enjoy. This will be a great community spirit and all attendance is very welcome.

We now have 19 leaders and we thank all those that have come on board to be leaders but we need to fill in the remaining leader slots – if you are interested contact Liz Phelan at 086 1205552.

Please support this event as not only will it help our club and community but also the very worthy charities – Cycle Against Suicide & Meath River Rescue.
