The Walk 2022

There will be a Walk next year on Saturday May 7th!!!  A special day of fun involving the whole village from midday until late evening.  There will be music, there will be food and you can walk 3kilometres or 6kilometres.  It would be lovely to see you in fancy dress.  People have been brilliant supporting the 6K Any Way Challenge and we cannot thank them enough.  We do hope the groups who did the challenge will walk as groups on this special day.

6K challenge raises 14k

Once again Walk for Life were unable to have their annual Walk and replaced it with The 6k Any Way Challenge where people could walk, run, swim, cycle 6 kilometres when and wherever they chose.  There were 26 individual challenges involving over 90 people.  From a very difficult 1km walk to an arduous 36km swim over 6 weeks, they all gave their time and effort and raised an incredible €14,140. 

The Walk for Life Committee are overwhelmed by people’s generosity in giving their time and their commitment and by the number of sponsors both private individuals and local companies who gave their money. We thank them all and assure them that this hard-earned money will be put to good use in helping to make life a little easier for people, in this area, who are affected by cancer.  You can see all the photos in the news section.

Let’s hope we can all come together next year at the annual Walk on Saturday 7th May.

This fantastic amount does not include the €2517raised by Richard Clarke and friends who walked to Saliente on May 16th.
