We have over 50 superstars who have signed up to participate and we have already raised over €5,200 before we’ve even started so a HUGE THANK YOU to all who have signed up, donated and supported our fundraiser so far!
It’s not too late to sign up, it’s fun and it’s free and will help us raise vital funds in order to help us re-open our Le Chéile centre safely and resume our person to person activities and groups again, to purchase more materials for our men’s shed and also to hire external facilitators that will provide training and support to our members in the form of Art Therapy, Music Therapy to name just a few.
100km in a month might sound quite daunting but it’s just 3-4km a day and you can get also boost your kms in whilst mowing the lawn, doing your grocery shopping or running around after the kids, you will be surprised how quickly it adds up! When you sign up you will also receive an invitation to our dedicated private facebook support group for this challenge where you will receive:
