Special Olympics Ireland proud partners of 2014 Great Limerick Run
TV3 newscaster Colette Fitzpatrick joined forces with Newstalk Breakfast host Chris Donoghue yesterday to announce a new charity partnership between Special Olympics Ireland and the Barrington's Hospital Great Limerick Run.
“It's a terrific charity and great cause,” said Fitzpatrick who is urging people to pick Special Olympics as their charity of choice for the Great Limerick Run.
While the glamorous host won’t be lacing up her runners for the event, radio presenter Donoghue will run as a Special Olympics ambassador in the race on May 4.
Special Olympics Ireland is preparing to send 1,500 athletes, 600 coaches and 2,500 volunteers to Limerick next June for three days of Olympic style sport in 13 different competitions.
The event will cost €1.9m to stage and organisers are hoping that sponsorship from the Great Limerick Run will go towards funding the event.
