All roads lead to Lecarrow for the inaugural walk/run in aid of the IMNDA (Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association) and RMN (Research Motor Neuron Disease) which takes place this Sunday, 25th of November at 1 pm from St. John’s Community Centre.
The event is called ‘Co. Roscommon Fun Walk/Run While You Can’ and it is all about bringing communities and people across the county together to raise awareness and support for Motor Neuron Disease.
By promoting and joining our Walk/Run, you are not only lending your voice to the call for better supports and services for people living with this condition, but making those supports possible.
Sadly, many people in our county and clubs/organisations have been affected by this dreadful, life-limiting condition. Most of us know somebody who, unfortunately, is currently suffering with, or has died from the disease.
50% of the funds raised will be used in the Roscommon area with the other 50% going towards Motor Neuron Research.
This Walk/Run is for everyone, irrespective of fitness levels. There will be three different routes on the day – 2km, 7km and 10 km – all starting and finishing at Lecarrow Community Centre.
Registration starts at 12 noon and all walks begin at 1 pm.
Registration fee is €10 for individuals and €20 for families. Refreshments will be served before, during and after the walk.
The committee would really appreciate your support in making this a successful fundraiser for a very worthy cause. You can support by promoting and sharing the event with your members, families, friends and associates through word of mouth or on social media.
