Boyle’s Covid Challenge is now almost a third of the way through the monthly challenge, and so far it has raised €2909 for the Brothers of Charity.
Collectively, participants have exercised for a total of 2007.41km.
Boyle GAA club, who are organising the challenge, would like to thank everyone who has donated so far and also all those who have run or walked to raise money.
You can still donate here
According to the club: “As we have nearly reached our initial exercise goal, we’ve decided to set two further targets to achieve. Let’s try to get to 4,000 km collectively in the month of May and raise €4,000 for the Brothers of Charity”.
With club activities currently suspended, Boyle GAA decided to launch this fundraising campaign in aid of the local Brothers of Charity to get people moving again.
The aim is to raise funds by asking people to firstly donate to the gofundme page and thereafter track the distance of any walk/run you undertake during the month of May. You only need to donate once!
Jackie Valentine is the club coordinator and you can send the distance you have walked/run each time you exercise to her by text (086 320 0915) to be logged. Your distances can not be added to the total unless you have made at least one donation to the gofundme page. the target is to run/walk 1900km collectively in May.
So take the dog out for a stroll, go for a family walk or escape for a run, every kilometre you complete and every euro you donate will get us closer to our target.
100% of the money raised will go to the Brothers of Charity.
