GENEROUS members of Milltown/Castlemaine GAA Club took to the roads with a vengeance to help raise close on €4,000 for the Pieta charity.

The Run 4 Pieta event saw close on 300 people walking or running various distances to close up a combined trek of 1,425.5kms – the equivalent of walking from Milltown to Paris.

Club member James Murphy participated in the 5km in Ontario, Canada

It was a worldwide effort with club members and past and present players in London, Dubai, Boston, Sydney and Canada, as well as from the four corners of Ireland, participating.

“On behalf of Milltown/Castlemaine GAA Club, a sincere thank you to everyone that walked, ran, donated or cheered people on along the way,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan.

She said the Pieta charity was absolutely thrilled with the awareness that was generated and the funds that were raised for the organisation.

Closer to home, club members found all sorts of novel places to get their walk in

“In a time of great difficulty in many households, we came together from near and far for a charity that provides essential care and counselling for those in their darkest hour,” said Deirdre.

Club members from around the world were invited to post snapshots of themselves doing the walk or run on the club social media sites.
