Run for the Wicklow Hospice Foundation

On the 1st of March, five Idiro staff members braved the wind and rain to take part in the Dublin Night Run in Sandymount.

Wicklow Hospice

Idiro are extremely proud to have staff take part in events such as these, to raise money for local charities. The money raised by Idiro's runners from this event will be donated to the Wicklow Hospice Foundation. After a long fundraising campaign by the Wicklow community, construction will soon begin on a new hospice facility at Magheramore in Brittas Bay. The hospice will provide 15 new beds for those in need and will cater to the people of Co. Wicklow and north Wexford.

The project is expected to be fully completed and open for the first patients by the end of 2018. http://www.rte.ie/news/2016/0302/771991-wicklow-hospice-tenders/

 

Well done to Aidan, Simon, Paddy, Brian and Ann-Marie on compleating the run. And congratulations to Brian for coming 5th overall in the 5KM distance, and Simon for beating his PB by 13 seconds in the 10KM distance.
