Virtual SoloRun from Kiltubrid to Croke Park:
In these uncertain times, with fundraising opportunities currently scarce at a local level, we want to lend a helping hand to two local organizations in Kiltubrid who provide an essential voluntary service in our community. Kiltubrid Care of the Aged provides a social outlet & support network for the elderly in our community which includes day trips and Christmas social nights, which bring the elderly in our community together. Kiltubrid Defibrillator Group runs a First Responder Voluntary Service in our community with seven operational defibrillator units throughout the area and fully trained personnel in Heartsaver CPR & AED. In 1983, a Solo-Run from Dublin to Kiltubrid was held to fundraise for the fledgling Kiltubrid GAA which was a massive event at the time. To celebrate this event 37 Years Ago, Kiltubrid people of all ages, both male & female are asked to get involved in a Virtual Solo-Run over June 20th & 21st with the total distance covered between Kiltubrid and Croke Park by return of 340KM. You can undertake the Solo-Run in your Back Garden or in a Safe Area with Social Distancing in mind. Regardless of distance covered or where you are in the world, we want you and your Family to upload a picture in your Green & Red colours to the Kiltubrid GAA Facebook page. Donations to this event can be made securely online via the link below: https://www.gofundme.com/f/kiltubridtocrokeparksolorun
