Run For a Life

Organiser: Irish Kidney Association

May 25 at 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

€20

The 11th year of the Irish Kidney Association’s Run For a Life.

Pictured at the launch of Irish Kidney Association’s ‘Run for a Life’ family fun run was dialysis patient Sam Kinahan (age 4) from Baldoyle, Dublin 13 with his parents Ivan and Chloe and sister Ali (age 8).

Race starts at 2pm with number collection from 12pm, with a 2.5km, 5km or 10km on offer with a mass start. Accurately measured 2.5km circuit. Start / finish beside car park.

Medal for all finishers and our famous ‘Soup and a Sandwich’ too! €20 for adults, €10 for children and €45 for a family (up to 2 adults and 4 children under 18 years).

At the photocall Chloe Kinahan, a native of Mullingar, said that, “In his short lifetime my son Sam has been receiving dialysis treatment for four years and eight months and that’s almost as long as he has been alive.
Sam is a patient at Temple Street Hospital and has soldiered through his illness as a happy little boy who seldom complains. One of the issues that comes with his condition is that he has never eaten properly because of his restrictive diet and he has primarily been tube fed. While he will enjoy the ceremonial blowing out of the candles on his 5th birthday cake he will not be able to eat it. His interests are typical of any young boy of his age and he loves watching Transformers and playing with the power hero robots in disguise.
While he is on the the deceased donor kidney transplant waiting list we anxiously await news that his father, Ivan, can be his living kidney donor as soon as possible. A donor kidney will be the catalyst for transforming Sam’s life and a new kidney will be his transformer!
Sam has attended the annual Run for a Life every year since his first as a baby being pushed along in his buggy by his father. We look forward to attending the event again this year and hopefully by then we will have received welcome news that Ivan can be Sam’s donor.”

Ray D’Arcy, the national ambassador for organ donor awareness 2019, will take part the ‘Run for a Life’ family fun run on 25th May. The fun event which is a celebration of life attracts over 500 participants annually. It is open to people of all ages and levels of fitness who can choose to walk, jog or run in the chip-timed event, which offers prizes for winners in a choice of 2.5km, 5km and 10km distances.

The Run for a Life Entry fee is €20 adult, €10 child and €45 for a family of up to 2 adults and up to 4 children. All finishers will receive a medal and entry fee also includes soup and sandwiches. For more information on the event visit website www.runforalife.ie
