Cill Barra 6KM Fun Run & Walk 2015

Fun Run Poster 2015

This years 6K Fun Run & Walk will be in aid of the Cill Barra Community Sports Centre, the only community gym offering affordable rates in Waterford city, and St. Saviours FC Ballybeg Waterford. Both of which were affected by the crime sprees that took place in Ballybeg at the end of January 2015. During numerous break-ins there was a significant amount of damage caused to both the Sports Centre and the Football Club. Neither organisation will be receiving funding from any other fundraising efforts related to those events in January 2015.

Please help support two very worthy organisations in the Ballybeg community.  The first 60 registered will receive a free t-shirt.

Help us to make this the best local community Fun Run & Walk in the county
