On Thursday, 10th September over 330 runners gathered in Mahon, Cork to support the first St Luke’s Home Memorial 5K Run. The St. Luke’s Home Foundation wanted to introduce an event to its calendar that embraced the Mahon Community, Health, Fitness and Fun. Everyone involved in the Charity is delighted that the event lived up to these expectations. It was also an opportunity to remember past residents and to involve people of all ages, all families, volunteers, supporters, staff, and indeed all who have an involvement, however small, with the Home.
Oonagh O’Driscoll, Director of the St Luke’s Home Foundation said: Support for St Luke’s Home and the great work that goes on here was palpable when over 200 participants stayed for the post-race refreshments and applauded the winners. We are hugely grateful to our fantastic sponsor RCI for the incredible support we received from them, not least of which was the amazing first prize for the fastest male and female of a European Holiday! We are confident that this is the first of many Memorial Runs for the Home and we thank everyone for the support they have shown us’.
