I would like to start by thanking everyone who took part in last year’s inaugural “Fly High Lily Daly Remembrance Run”
It was a very special day and we were overwhelmed by the huge turnout. We would like to run the race again this year albeit as a virtual event in light of current restrictions.
A virtual event gives you huge flexibility to choose where and when you run. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on a trail or even on the treadmill. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. All you need to do is upload a completed pic of your time through the popup races app.
We ran last year’s event to support Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Ireland and contribute to the construction of a sensory garden on the grounds of Lily’s former school in Gaelscoil Inse Chor which has proven to be of huge benefit to the kids especially during this pandemic.
Last year your very generous contributions raised a staggering amount which exceeded our wildest expectations and we hope in some small way this helped the incredible work that is being done by SBHI as well as providing a much needed outdoor space dedicated to her memory that will be enjoyed by the students of Lily’s school for years to come.
This year we have chosen three great charities that will benefit from your support and all proceeds from this event will be equally shared between the Irish Cancer Society to honour our beloved friend Elizabeth Power, Spina Bifida Ireland and Gaelscoil Inse Chor have very generously decided to allow the pupils to nominate a charity to receive their allocation of funds. The pupils have chosen Focus Ireland as the thrid charity.
Spinibifida Ireland, Cancer and Focus Ireland.
