Croí Night Run – Your Story


If I can do the Croí Night Run 5km, anybody can!


No, really….  in late 2015 at 41, I had a stroke & was totally paralysed on my left side. Having spent 2 months in bed, I progressed to a wheelchair & through lots of sweat, determination & support, I learned how to walk & walked out of the hospital, one step at a time.

Less than a year later, I registered for the Croí Night Run 5km, not knowing what to expect, coming from Dublin – I’d never been in Salthill, Co. Galway. The welcome that I received was like a big warm hug, wrapping you up & later when crossing the finishing line, in tears, to the sounds of Tina Turner is something I’ll never forget and it spurred me on to come back and do it again – and I did and I wasn’t last but that really doesn’t matter – I tell myself “you’re lapping everybody on the couch

Croí provides invaluable support to stroke survivors (like myself) and their families so not only will you feel a great sense of achievement, you’ll also be helping a very worthy course.

So what are you waiting for? If I can do it, you can…. good luck 🍀

Hope the rain holds off this year 😊
