A fundraising 120km walk will take place from May 5th to 8th in aid of Sr. Consilio’s Cuan Mhuire Centre, which is located at Coolarne, Co. Galway.
Former residents and staff were eager to give something back to the centre and so came up with the 120km ‘Addiction 2 Recovery Walk’ which will begin at Roscommon Racecourse on Thursday, May 5th.
The walk will cover approximately 30km per day passing through Athlone, Ballinasloe, Loughrea, Craughwell and Athenry before finishing at Cluan Mhuire on the afternoon of Sunday, May 8th.
Cuan Mhuire is Ireland’s largest voluntary provider of rehabilitaton treatment for individuals suffering from addiction and related issues.
Since its foundation in 1966 by Sr. Consilio, the centre has treated over 75,000 people. Its main objective is the rehabilitation of those suffering from alcohol/drug/gambling addictions.
At any one time Cuan Mhuire has 600 people in treatment through their nationwide centres in Bruree, Co. Limerick; Farnanes, Co. Cork; Athy, Co. Kildare; Coolarne, Co. Galway and Newry, Co. Down.
