O’Dwyers Senior Ladies 1,000km in 7 Days fundraiser

April 14, 2020 0

O’Dwyers Ladies team are going to run 1,000km in 7 days from Monday 20th to Sunday 27th April. Individual runs within 2km radius of home will be added to group tally daily. They are hoping to raise funds for Balbriggan Cancer Support Group and Jigsaw Balbriggan.

bcsg_144x97Balbriggan Cancer Support Group is a community driven and volunteer based organisation that was established in May 2010 by a group of local men and women concerned with the lack of cancer support within the area. Their mission is to be a message of hope and an opportunity to get involved in the fight against cancer by providing access to information and support to all people affected by cancer and those who care for them. Balbriggan Cancer Support group had to cancel their St Patrick’s Day run this year and as this is their main source of funding to run the centre so events like this go a long way to help with the running of the centre.

jigsaw_north_fingal_144x97Jigsaw North Fingal offers a support service to 12-25 years old who live, work or go to school in the North Fingal area and wish to speak to someone about common concerns to mild mental health issues.  As part of the national Jigsaw network supported by Headstrong, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, Jigsaw North Fingal aims to make sure that young people’s voices are heard and that they get the right support, where and when they need it.
