GAA: Cycle/Walk/Run: The big day is almost here!Bruree GAA will hold a fun cycle/walk/run on this Sunday, April 28th, to raise funds for the Senior and Juvenile Clubs. The emphasis of the event will be on the fun, family and health element of the day and everyone is welcome to participate. The event will give families and individuals an opportunity to get out in the fresh air, have a bit of exercise and support their local GAA club. The route will start at the sportsfield and will head on a circular route via the Pump Cross, Knockmore, Dromacommer, Clonbrien, the Forge Cross and Clogher back to the sportsfield. This is about 10k and the walkers and runners/joggers will complete one circuit with the cyclists completing two. All cyclists must wear a helmet and all participants must sign in before starting the event. Participants can supports the fundraising in one of two ways - by filling a sponsorship card or by paying a participation fee on the day. Sponsorship cards will be distributed to all club members and players. Anyone else wishing to secure sponsorship can obtain a card from Johnny Wall (087)1264592. On the day, cyclists are €10 (€15 for a family) and walkers/runners/joggers €5 (€10 for a family).
Players and club members now have sponsorship cards and we hope that you will be generous in your sponsorship of them.
Kerry footballer, Darragh Ó Sé, will officially start the event at Bruree sportsfield and run with the participants.
