This year saw the third annual Good Run in aid of Motor Neurone Disease (MND/ALS) care, support and research take place in St. Anne’s Park in Dublin, Ireland. More than 850 people, of all ages and levels, took part in the charity fun run on Good Friday, April 14th 2017.
This week it was announced that the event raised an amazing total of €21,630. The funds have been divided equally between the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA; a charity which provides care and support to people with MND, their families, friends and carers) and Project MinE. This valuable contribution to Project MinE will allow for the mapping of more than five further DNA profiles. This is the largest amount to date raised by the event which has grown year on year since its inception in 2015 demonstrating its increasing success. It’s fast becoming an established date in both the running and fundraising calendars.
Dave Tracey and Olivia Sexton, as pictured, two of the event organisers, presented the cheque to Mark Heverin and Emma Corr of Project MinE Ireland, along with Dave Bergin of the primary sponsor Goodbody.
Sponsors of the event included Goodbody, Butlers Chocolate Café, Doggett Group, Dublin City Council, EBS, Fyffes, Haribo, Irish Tar, Keoghs Crisps, Marino Credit Union, Runzone, Stacks Pharmacy and Vinehall Displays.
A huge congratulations and thank you to the Good Run team for their stellar work and continuing support of Project MinE.
