Run for Barretstown

Join Team Barretstown

Lots of sporting events, big and small, are happening across Ireland in 2013. Every year hundreds of people raise thousands for charities by taking part in marathons, 10/5k runs, mini marathons and more.

The feeling when you cross the finish line can only be describe as euphoric! 2013 could be the year that YOU have that feeling and do something to help others and nothing more worthy than children who are suffering with a serious illness and going through rigourous treatment.

To get you thinking here’s a selection of events happening in 2013. Simply register here, and then email Bernie on and she’ll send you all the fundraising tips and info you need.
