THE organisers of the Bon Secours Great Limerick Run are calling on companies to take part in the fittest company challenge as part of the event again this year.

Holmes O’Malley Sexton Solicitors (HOMS) is sponsoring the fittest company challenge for the fifth consecutive year.

A fun, friendly and free competition amongst businesses and organisations that forms part of the Great Limerick Run on May 6, 110 companies of all sizes took part last year and the competition was intense, according to event director John Cleary, who said it had “grown both in size and prestige over the last five years.

“So many companies now leverage from this event to encourage employees to get active and work together.”

HOMS managing partner Harry Fehily said the company was proud to be sponsoring “a tremendously positive event for Limerick that is a positive initiative which promotes a healthy lifestyle for employees and is conducive for team building”.

This year HOMS will have a team of runners raising funds for Temple Street University Children’s Hospital, with the firm to match the first €1,500 raised by staff members for the hospital.

Temple Street Foundation chief executive Denise Fitzgerald said the hospital was “thrilled with the support”.
