New date for Milford Hospice 10k run


THE popular Milford Hospice annual 10km run has been re-scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 13.
A successful virtual 10km in 2021 saw a record-breaking number of participants complete the distance from home and overseas.
John Kiely, Limerick Senior Hurling Manager, along with some key players, recently launched the annual 10km fundraising event, which is supported by DELL Technologies.
John explained; “The players and I are thrilled to be supporting and bringing awareness to this important fundraiser for Milford. The work carried out by Milford Care Centre in our community is extremely important and valuable to the Mid West region. I hope you can support them in raising funds vital to the running of Milford Hospice.”
The 10km is open to runners and walkers of all levels and abilities, with all proceeds going directly to Milford Palliative Care services across Clare, Limerick and North Tipperary.
Mary O’Brien, CEO of Milford Care Centre said; “Things are happening a little differently with a blended approach of a virtual and live event. We welcome all participants, especially those joining us from overseas, to register. The fun and camaraderie will still be the same with our blended approach. We will be following all the public health guidance in relation to Covid-19 to ensure a safe and fun-filled event”.
Mary continued: “We pride ourselves on striving to deliver the highest quality of care across the services; the Specialist In Patient Unit, Hospice Out Patient Unit, Specialist Palliative Day Care and Hospice At Home (community teams working across Limerick, Clare and Tipperary). The extent of Palliative Care services provided would not be possible without the ongoing generosity of the general public. Please come along or join us virtually to support this key event. We are delighted to have the continued support of DELL Technologies as the main sponsor”.
Sean O’Reilly, VP Fulfillment & Logistics and DELL Technologies Campus Leader noted: “DELL Technologies has a long history of supporting community work locally and Milford Care Centre has long held a special place in the hearts and minds of all working at our campus in Limerick. We look forward to helping Milford raise much needed funds to continue to provide essential palliative care for those in need within the Mid West”.
