The 7th Annual Croí Night Run, in aid of Croí, the heart and stroke charity, took place virtually on Friday, October 8, with a record number of participants running and walking a 5km in their local area.
“Over 2,800 people joined us this year from every county in Ireland and internationally from dozens of countries including Australia, USA, Brazil, the UK and more! We are so grateful to everyone who joined us for this event. It’s one of our favourite events of the year and we love seeing all of our Croí friends out running and walking in support of people living with heart disease,” says Christine Flanagan, Croí’s Director of Fundraising.
With thanks to Croí’s new Night Run sponsor Irish Life Health and media partner, iRadio, 100% of the proceeds will go directly to supporting Croí services. This includes supporting our health and support programmes including Heartlink West (our free community phone line) and the Croí Courtyard Apartments, free to families in need while their loved ones receive heart or stroke care.
Edel McDermott, spokesperson from Irish Life Health commented, “It was fantastic to see so many people participate in this year’s event. A huge thank you to the 1,700 people who joined our MyLife challenge and tracked their run. Thanks to their efforts, we are delighted to announce that together with MyLife, Irish Life Health are donating a further €5,000 to Croí.”
