As mentioned previously here on the blog, a group of us will be running the Great Limerick Run on 6th May 2018, in memory of Grace McDermott, co-founder of Women Are Boring, who died tragically just hours after running the same race in 2017. The group includes Grace’s fiancé Colin O’ Neill (who came up with this wonderful idea), and friends and family from all over the world – some will be travelling from Grace’s home of New York in the U.S. to take part.
Many of us (including myself and Grace’s fiancé, Colin) will be running our first ever race, and everyone involved is running to raise money for a good cause. We would love to have your support!
I’m running for Women’s Aid, the Irish organisation that has been working in Ireland to stop domestic violence, sexual violence, and coercive control against women and children since 1974. If you can spare some money, no matter how small, you can support me, and Women’s Aid, here: https://great-limerick-run-2018.everydayhero.com/ie/catherine
Colin (and many others involved!) are running for Cradle, an Irish NGO that looks after children and supports communities in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania, Moldova, Thailand and Ireland. You can support Colin and all the other wonderful people who’ll be running on 6th May here: https://justgiving.com/fundraising/colin-o-neill1
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Please share with your family and friends, and join us in Running with Grace!
