Challenge Yourself on the 9th of April for ACT
Galway will once again be buzzing with Athletes from all over the country on Sunday 9th of April 2017 as ACT for Meningitis bring their exciting annual sporting event “Remembering Aoibhe Renville Challenge”, which includes a 5k fully time-chipped run/walk and an exciting 3k/16k/3k Duathlon, back to the picturesque Renville Park in Oranmore, overlooking the beautiful Galway Bay.
Take part in one or both events on the day and thanks to the generousity of their sponsors, DFS & Co Accountants Galway and EducoGym Galway, every cent of your registration fee goes directly to the charity to enable them to continue to support anyone in Ireland affected by Meningitis while raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of this life changing disease.
The “Remembering Aoibhe Renville Challenge” is held each year close to the anniversary of precious Aoibhe Carroll, (daughter of ACT founders Siobhan and Noel Carroll) who sadly lost her life to Meningitis in 2008 at just four years of age, but ACT believe this is also a chance for everyone who has lost a loved one to come out and take on a personal challenge in their memory.
