Support children’s charity PREDA’s “Run for Freedom” with Catherina McKiernan and Damien Dempsey


“Take a stand for child rights – or better take a run!” PREDA’s “Run for Freedom” with musician Damien Dempsey and athletics legend Catherina McKiernan on Saturday 28th April ,2012 in the Phoenix Park

PREDA is a Philippines based children’s charity which strives to free children from adult prisons and child exploitation.


The run will provide runners of all ages and fitness levels to show their solidarity with the children rescued by PREDA by running or walking on the afternoon of the 28th of April. Your support can genuinely make a difference – to put it in context 60 euro can pay for the legal fees to free a child from prison. It will be an enjoyable event as it will be a soft sell of a hard message.

Children under 12 are free and it will be a great opportunity to meet athletics legend Catherina and musician Damien Dempsey who is getting us all set for "The Rocky Road to Poland" !
