The March will be leaving from behind Rockfords, Roscommon Town at 6.30PM sharp! You are asked to ‘Wear Orange’ – it can be anything at all! Something as simple as a T Shirt, a hair ribbon or a whole orange ensemble!! In saying that there is going to be a prize for the best Adult Orange outfit and best children’s Orange outfit – so get planning folks! We will make our way to the park where you will be asked to tie an orange ribbon around the trunk of one of our beautiful trees. There will be music, entertainment for the children and light refreshments. This is not a fundraising event; it is a community event to show the phenomenal support we have here for children with a disease that currently has no treatment; a disease that currently has no cure. The event is being filmed for future use to raise awareness of DMD and the amazing community effort that has done so much to support. Join Our Boys. May 1st is also two special little boys 5th Birthday!! George & Isaac would love to celebrate with you along with their big brother Archie.
