This is just one of two exciting fundraising initiatives that will be run to raise vital funds so that Roscommon LGFA can continue to provide for all county teams and club competitions (when they are able to resume). It has been one of the most challenging times for fundraising, with Covid-19 impacting on our annual church gate collection. Our executive, with our management teams and our LGFA community, have kindly offered to take part.
The aim is for each participant to reach 100km in thirty-one days. You can run, walk or cycle – whatever is easier for you – from February 14th until March 17th. As of Wednesday evening, the fundraiser has already raised €500 of its €10,000 target. A special GoFundMe link has been set up, and can be accessed through Roscommon LGFA’s social media channels.
The ‘5k for Roscommon LGFA’ walk/run is for everyone, young or old. Challenge your nearest rivals to get involved! Participants can register on Pop up Races. The entry fee is €5 for U18s, €10 for over 18s and €25 per family. The 5k will take place the weekend of April 2nd to April 5th. All are welcome to participate, from keen runners to casual walkers. It’s all about getting reconnected and active again. Whether you’re at home in Ireland or in your home from home in Sydney, London or Singapore – you can be part of your Roscommon LGFA community again in these challenging times.
The winners of our Combined Draw at the EGM meeting were as follows: St. Faithleach’s, Colm Finnerty of Northern Harps, Carmel McGovern of St. Ronan’s, Joe Daly of St. Ronan’s, and Fiona Thompson of St. Croan’s.
