Speaking during a light training session at The Watershed in
Kilkenny, Sonya Lanigan, Chairperson of the Susie Long Hospice
Fund Committee said
“Susie Long was a great campaigner
and a great woman. We’re calling on everyone in Kilkenny
to come out and play their part to help us raise funds to build
a hospice for the people of Kilkenny and Carlow. You don’t
have to be a super athlete to take part in either of the mini-marathons.
Lots of people walk it with groups of friends and it’s
a great day out. Once you enter the mini-marathon, either in
Dublin or Kilkenny, then get in touch with us and we’ll
send you a sponsorship pack to get you started. The sponsorship
raised will help us reach our target of €2 million”.
