Last year over 1100 Gorey Night Runners ran through the streets of Gorey raising much-needed funds for North Wexford Hospice raising over €16,000!! So since the first Gorey Night Run in 2016 the total raised amounts to €66,000.
For those who don’t know The North Wexford Hospice provides a home-based Specialist Palliative Care Service in County Wexford. The aim of the service is to enhance the palliative care of patients in the home and to support and assist their families and professional carers. This service is available to people throughout County Wexford. The service is provided by a team of specialist palliative care nurses – 365 days per year.
The service is funded through voluntary donations from organisations and individuals throughout the county.
All money raised in County Wexford stays in County Wexford. Every cent raised goes to the nursing care.
Their fundraising opportunities have been decimated in the last year, so they need the support more than ever.
So…this year Gorey Night Run 2021 is back & this year we’re going Global!!
Unfortunately due to Covid 19 restrictions, we cannot have our usual fun filled event around the streets of Gorey. Instead this year, we are changing the format to include people all over the world.
So this February we are holding Gorey Virtual Night Run and we are hoping that people near and far will register, make a donation to support the incredible work of North Wexford Hospice, so this is a great motivation to get out and walk run or jog 5km at a time and place that suits you!
Register on Pop Up Races.ie and run walk-jog 5km between FEBRUARY 18th – FEBRUARY 21st 2021.
You can get fit, get a T-Shirt & donate to a very worthy charity!! (Please note T Shirts are LIMITED!!) Register early to ensure you get yours!
Remember 100% of the proceeds go to the charity!!
