THE proceeds of a road race event last weekend were presented to a local charity on Friday.

Michelle Greaney of MG Coaching organised the third annual Tralee 10 Miler/5k race on Sunday last, where hundreds of runners took part in what was a hugely successful event in aid of Kerry Hospice Foundation.

Michelle presented a cheque for €2,200 to Andrea O’Donoghue and Dan Galvin at The Rose Hotel on Friday. “We raised €50o more than last year so it shows the event is growing,” said Michelle. “It’s a huge feelgood factor being able to hand over this amount of money to Kerry Hospice.”

“With the postponement of the race due to weather two weeks earlier, we thought we might lose people but it ended up being even more successful. We’re looking forward to next year’s race,” added Michelle, who thanked all who helped her, especially her family, including mom Ita, sisters Joan and Orla and nieces Sarah and Megan.

It’s not the end Michelle’s fundraising  endeavours for Kerry Hospice this year. In October she is organising the ‘Tralee Endurance Challenge’ of which more details will follow.

Dan Galvin of Kerry Hospice thanked Michelle for her efforts. “She has been a tremendous fundraiser for us over the past few years. We appreciate all the events held in aid of the Hospice around the county and we welcome people who have ideas for holding fundraisers,” he said.
