Croí, the heart and stroke charity, is delighted to announce that registration is open for the 9th Annual Croí Night Run, on Friday, October 13th, 2023, on Salthill promenade.
Join Croí as they welcome heart health advocate Dáithí Ó’Sé to Salthill promenade on Friday 13th October to raise funds and shine a light on heart health. Media partner iRadio will have the iTeam at the start line to get participants pumped and ready for a great 5k!
Registration is open to people of all abilities and Croí is encouraging everyone to get involved, young and old, family, friends, and work colleagues to run, jog or walk 5km in aid of Croí!
With thanks to Benecol®, 100% of the proceeds will go directly to supporting Croí services. This includes sustaining health and support initiatives and community programmes including a free community helpline, Croí Connects, and the Croí Courtyard Apartments, available to families in need of accommodation while their loved ones receive heart or stroke care in University Hospital Galway.
“Following a hugely successful event last year with over 2,000 participants, we continue to encourage people to take their heart health seriously for 2023 and sign up early for this year’s event to run, jog or walk 5km in aid of Croí. We expect this year to be a sell out event, so we would advise early registration. We would like to thank heart health advocate Daíthí Ó’Sé, Benecol® and media partner iRadio for their support.” said Christine Flanagan, Director of Fundraising at Croí.
“I’m delighted to participate in Croí’s 5k Night Run sponsored by Benecol®. I’ll be taking part in team Benecol®, the sponsor of this year’s run. Benecol® wants to spread cholesterol awareness and encourage everyone to get their cholesterol levels tested. Lots of people are unaware that their levels are high even though it affects 60% of the Irish population. Take me for example, I didn’t know my cholesterol was high until I went to my annual check-up with the doctor. To get it down, I’ve been taking Benecol® shots in the morning with my breakfast. It’s a simple change that’s making a big difference to my health.” Commented heart health advocate Daíthí Ó’Sé.
Registration is now open – you can take part individually or register as part of a team with your family, friends, or colleagues to walk, run or jog! Participants will receive a special Croí Night Run Goodie Bag which will include a NEW limited-edition Croí Night Run long-sleeve running jacket and Benecol® goodies.
