THE FITZERS 5k Fun Run for Rehab event takes place on Saturday February 23 in aid of Dundalk Simon Community and RehabCare Dundalk.
The event, which is organised in association with the Marshes Shopping centre will take place at 11am and the excitement about the event is building up throughout the town already.
