1,200 heart heroes for Croi

Friday October 14th saw 1,200 runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities run the 2nd Annual Croi Galway Night Run. Cold damp conditions did not stop our heart heroes from coming out onto Salthill Promenade and taking part.

“We were overwhelmed with the turnout on the night and the support leading up to the event. It is one of our biggest fundraisers in the year and the support is heart-warming. 100% of the proceeds to Croi and this helps us in the fight against heart disease and stroke in the West of Ireland. All abilities, all ages some recovering from stroke, heart attack and getting back into fitness others took part in memory of a loved one. It is a very special event, an emotional one.” Edwina Treacy, Fundraising Manager Croi.

Sincere thanks to all who took part, our sponsor Evergreen Healthfoods, Salthill community, Salthill Garda, Bloodbike West, Irish Red Cross and our volunteers and bike marshals whom we could not be without.
