A young Letterkenny woman is taking on a ‘999’ challenge to raise vital funds for three Irish charities.
Clíodhna Harvey is a 2nd year student of Sports and Exercise Sciences at the University of Limerick.
Later this month, Clíodhna and her classmates will complete the ‘ 999 for the Frontline’ challenge by completing a 9km run/walk/cycle/swim. They hope to start a trend by nominating 9 people and asking to take part and donate €9 to their GoFundMe page: https://gofund.me/f1eada63
This event is in aid of three great charities: The Irish Cancer Society, Limerick Suicide Watch and the Mater Hospital.
This event will also commemorate the life of Jacinta O’Brien, a former lecturer in Sports and Exercise Psychology. Ms O’Brien sadly passed in 2004 due to Sudden Adult Death syndrome. She was also an avid spokesperson for participation of girls and women in physical activity.
“999 for the frontline is an event for us as a nation to give back, as the last year has shown us is so important,” said Clíodhna.
Taking on the challenge is also a great way to challenge yourself physically during a time when physical events are limited.
If you would like to support Clíodhna and join the challenge yourself, all you have to do is complete 9km your way between the 22nd and 26th of March and donate to https://gofund.me/f1eada63
