As some of you might know, at the beginning of May the 2014 Great Limerick Run took place. Over 12,000 people participated in events associated with the Great Limerick Run, including 14 members of the ActionPoint team who completed the 6 mile. In doing so we decided to raise money for Special Olympics Ireland, whose Special Olympics Games are set to take place in Limerick from the 13th to the 15th June.
And first across the line for our team was…
We all made a valiant effort with our training (some more than others!), and the competitive spirit was alive and well on the day. At 1.30pm we all lined up to represent both ActionPoint and Special Olympics in our blue t-shirts, and we felt the buzz of Limerick city’s community spirit as the run kicked off. First across the line for ActionPoint was Gary Staunton with an amazing time of 49:06 mins. Hot on his tail was Caroline O’Brien coming in at 53:54 mins. The rest of the team followed closely behind, as well as the final few walkers of the day who went at a more leisurely pace! Well done lads!
€1800 raised for Special Olympics Ireland.
With the race over and the final tally of funds collected we were delighted to learn that we had raised €1800 for Special Olympics Ireland. We would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to all our friends, family, clients and supporters for their generous donations. We hope you will join us in our support of this year’s Special Olympics Games in Limerick, where over 1,500 athletes from the 4 corners of Ireland will be heading to compete.

Now it’s off to start training for next year’s run!
