Run for Mary 5km Run/Jog/Walk 2023
Nov 11 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The annual Run for Mary 5km Run/Jog/Walk is taking place in Peterswell, Co. Galway on
Saturday Nov 11th 2023.
This is our 10th year running this event which has been organised in memory of our dear
friend Mary Prendergast who passed away on 2nd January 2014 aged 42 years. Mary was a member of our local South Galway Athletics club and ran the Dublin City Marathon with us in 2004.
Mary and Paddy got married in 2004 and were blessed to have three children Carlyn, Roslyn and Zach. Baby Zach passed away when he was only one week old on June 4th 2012. Mary was diagnosed with cancer 5 months after the loss of baby Zach. Her courage and dignity during her battle with breast cancer was inspiring to all who knew her.
All proceeds from this fundraising event will go to two charities, Galway Hospice and Hand in Hand Children’s Cancer Charity.
We are welcoming all athletes, runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities to
attend this memorial event.
Please remember to invite your friends and family!
