Take a break from dinner by the fireside this Christmas season and support Pieta House with the charity Wren Run on St. Stephen’s Day.
Pieta House is a national charity which provides support for people having suicidal thoughts or who are self-harming.
As a non-profit they need the support of charitable donations, including the annual Wren Run taking place in Woodford this Christmas.
This charity run is being co-organised by Pieta House and local sports clubs.
It’s a great family event to take part in over the holidays for people of all ages and skill levels, with all routes dog and buggy friendly.
There are two courses for runners to choose from. The 3km track at Tommy Larkins GAA Club, and the 6km track at the club and along forest trails.
Runners can enter as individuals, a family of two adults and their kids, or a team of up to seven people.
Anyone who takes part will be automatically entered into a monster raffle with incredible prizes including a meal for 2 at Nevin Maguires’ MacNean House, a stay at the wonderful Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, a monthly Meal Plan from Clean Cut Meals and more.
Register as a team and in addition to the raffle, you’ll be in with a chance to win a set of 15 jerseys for your club or team.
Proceeds from the run will be split fifty-fifty between Pieta House and Davitts Camogie Club / Tommy Larkins GAA Club.
The clubs plan to use their share of the proceeds to support community well being initiatives in east Galway.
The run will start at 11am on December 26 at Tommy Larkins GAA Park, with registration open from 9:30-10:40am.
Anyone who’s interested in burning off those Christmas dinner calories while supporting a great cause can register online for the Pieta House Wren Run here.
