This weekend sees the club host one of it's most significant fundraising events since the opening of St. Finian's Park in 2017 when a 24-Hour Walkathon takes place at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The event will see over 500 walkers take part over 24 hours in 24 teams with the common goal of collectively raising €30,000 to provide the remaining required funds to construct a floodlit All-Weather Astro pitch in the Park.
The objective is an important one in the overall development plan of the club. The phenomenal growth of our underage section in the past few years has seen many teams hiring all-weather facilities during the winter months. Pair that with the potential of rental income hire it's no surprise that the event has received such overwhelming support thus far.
As well the various business team sponsors the club are also delighted to secure the support of Enfield Credit Union as the main event sponsor. Their representatives will have the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially start the event come 5pm Saturday afternoon. We again take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our walkers and businesses for their support. The excellently prepared 'Event Programme' can be collected by each walker at the event which details all of those sponsors and includes a children's spot prize competition that can be completed on the back of the programme leaflet.
We remind all participants that a fundraiser during these Covid times is very different than that pre-Covid so we ask everyone to bring your own pen and adhere to the usual social distancing protocols. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for regular updates on each team which will be provided by a dedicated committee member every hour.
In the unlikely event that you haven't been asked to walk or contribute please contact our Facebook page directly or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be delighted to receive your support. Alternatively, simply click on walker/contributor payment link below.
We look forward to seeing you all at some stage over the 24 hours as you play your part in making our hopes of an All-Weather Astro facility become a reality, Cluain Ioraird abú!
