Brackaville Owen Roes GFC 10K Road Race & 5K Walk/Fun Run

Local suicide awareness and prevention charity the Niamh Louise Foundation has welcomed the news that Brackaville Owen Roes will be supporting the charity in their up and coming fundraising event.

The football club is running a 10k Race/ 5k Walk on Saturday 2nd October and the proceeds of the run will go towards both the club and the Niamh Louise Foundation.

Speaking about the event, Resource Centre Manager, Eimear Mc Kearney has said, ‘the charity is delighted to be working closely with Brackaville Owen Roes. Whilst the 10k will be a huge physical challenge for some of us it is an excellent opportunity for the whole community to raise awareness of suicide’.  She continued, ‘Many of us do not realise that there is a direct link between our mental health and our physical health and the 10k run/ 5k walk is an ideal opportunity for us to exercise both and also to have some fun along the way!’

The 10k Race/ 5k Walk will take place on Saturday 2nd October. Registration closes at 12.30pm with the run/walk commencing at 1pm from the club grounds.

Anyone wishing to enter can register on the day, or for an e-entry e-mail brackaville10k@hotmail.co.uk
