THE annual Tralee Santa 5k Fun Run was a huge success back in December and the fruits of that occasion were presented this week.

Thanks to everyone’s efforts a massive €6,000 was presented yesterday at the hospital.

Each year the run is held in memory of Fiona Moore who passed away at the age of 16 in May 2013 from Pulmonary Hypertension, while waiting on a lung transplant.

Previous beneficiaries of the run were Make-a –Wish, Heart Children Ireland, Barretstown and Ronald McDonald House and now well over €40,000 has been collected for great causes.
