The Donegal Airport 5K on a glorious evening in Carrickfinn proved a tremendous success with 249 taking part. A fundraiser for the North West Cancer Support Group, donations amounted to a staggering 4300 euros. A big thank you to all who took part, who gave donations, who collected donations, to the Rosses Athletic Club whose officials did a great job in organising the event, and to Donegal Airport for hosting the event. And what about Margaret Mc Fadden – at 84 years of age the oldest person to do the 5K. The proceeds were presented to Mary Mc Ginley by Mark Nicolas and Ita Gallagher. Maith sibh uilig.
