Sarsfield’s GAA in conjunction with Fighting Fit and Colin Glen Forest Park are organising a 5K Santa Run & Walk as a fundraiser for 2 great charities. Santa Attire is wholly encouraged! Please bring your own Santa Suit / Hat / Christmas Jumper / Reindeer Horns etc.

Charity 1: Glen Parent ‘families in need appeal’ to buy winter fuel vouchers for relevant families in the area.

Charity 2: Colin Glen Trust Manages the upkeep of Colin Glen Forest Park as a resource for the local community to enjoy. The trust also provides Youth, Sport, Education & Activity prorgammes for marginalised young people from an area of high social need. Your donation will help us to continue our valuable work. Due to substantially reduced Statutory Funding, Colin Glen is reliant on the input and help from the the local community.
