With the amazing success of last year’s Charity event, the Ardara 10k fun run & walk is back and will take place on Saturday the 20th of April.
Last year was a very emotional time for the Maguire family, only three months after the death of their beautiful Martina they collected themselves and ran one of the biggest road races in Donegal last year.
Over 1,100 participants took part in last year’s event and an amazing 21,000 euro was raised for charity.
Martina was a beautiful young 16 year old girl who had just received the highest Junior Cert results in her school just days before she was diagnosed with Leukaemia.
Unfortunately after a brave four month battle Martina sadly lost her fight with cancer in January of last year.
The race was organised by Martina’s brother Michael who wanted to raise much needed funds for his sister’s hospital in Crumlin and he hopes to repeat the success this year again.
This year’s race proceeds will go to the very worthy causes of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin and the Ardara Sheltered Housing.
People can register on the day from 11am at the Ardara Parish Centre, registration is 10 euro for Adults and 6 euro for youth. There will be refreshment served after and there are prizes for all categories. The race will kick off at 2.30pm. Everyone is welcome.
