Club goes on the run for very worthy causes

CARING members of Listry GAA Club are planning to stage a 48-hour run or walk this coming bank holiday weekend to generate funds for the Kerry Hospice Foundation and the Kerry Cancer Support Group.

It will take place from May 29-31 and senior players will be encouraged to run or walk the for first 24 hours with the wider community, including families, asked to join in for the following 24 hours. The public is being asked to donate through a special GoFundMe page.

“It would be great to get as much support as possible for the event,” said Listry club member Liam Murphy.

The main organiser is Anthony Kennedy and the funds raised will be dived between the two chosen charities, both of which are very close to the hearts of the people of Kerry.

“As club games linger and the prospect of playing as a team together remains uncertain, we have decided to use the time given to us to give back by raising money,” said Anthony.

“Our community has suffered immensely in the last number of years at the hands of cancer and other sicknesses and locals have needed to use these services on a frequent basis,” he added.

“With the 48-hour relay run we can continue to stick together whilst staying apart to support these vital resources to continue to provide the brilliant services that they do,” said Anthony.
