Ashford Relay Race fundraiser for Wicklow Syria Appeal

December 2, 2017 3:00 am

Ashford GAA, Ashford Soccer Club and Ashford Athletics Club will be hosting a Fun Relay Race for all ages at Ashford GAA pitch on December 2nd.

The aim is to have each participant join together in one continuous relay and the laps will be counted to see how close everyone can get to Homs in Syria, which is 4,721km away. Everyone is welcome, as it is a race for young and old, kids, adults and families. You can walk, run or crawl!

This fundraising event is to help bring a Syrian family from Homs to Wicklow and to support them on their journey. Wicklow Syria Appeal has partnered with the Irish Immigrant Support Council NASC who are helping reunite a Syrian family with their relatives who are currently living in Ireland.

A BBQ and tea and coffee will be provided.

Each participant will contribute €2 towards the charity.
