THE Santa 5k Fun Run which was in Tralee in December helped to raise an amazing €8,600 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland.

Close to 1,000 runners, many dressed as Santas and their elves, braved the elements on December 14 in aid of the charity. (See video and photos here)

The run was held in memory of Tralee girl, Fiona Moore, who died in May 2013 at the age of 16 from Primary Pulmonary hypertension, while awaiting a lung transplant.

The cheque was presented to the Charity recently by Fiona’s mother, Deirdre Moore and one of the organisers Mags O’Regan Quillinan.

“We’d like to thank the people of Kerry who raised the funds. There was great support from the public for the event,” said Mags O’Regan Quillinan.

The mission of The Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland (RMHC) Ireland, is to provide a Ronald McDonald House in order to support families whose children are seriously ill in hospital.

The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation and a caring and supportive environment for families whose children are seriously ill and are hospitalised or undergoing medical treatment at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin 12.

The Ronald McDonald House Charity took to Facebook to express their obvious delight and thanks at the huge donation.
