Eurospar Dungiven is holding their Annual Charity 10K Run tomorrow, Saturday 25th August 2012 with proceeds from the event going to the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children and local charity Benbradagh Community Support.

Following from the success of last year’s event, the community are being encouraged to participate this year.

“If the thought of a 10K run puts you off completely, there will also be a shorter 3K fun run/walk that everyone is welcome to enter, for those who enjoy a stroll and mummies with their buggies,” said a spokesperson. “Registration will take place at Dungiven Sports pavilion on 25th august from 10am to 11.30am or alternatively forms can be picked up in businesses in the Dungiven area and returned to Eurospar or Benbradagh Community Support prior to the race day.”

There are a number of categories in the event with prizes, which includes first, second and third for male and females as well as first, second and third for male and female over 40’s. Eurospar Dungiven will be donating the cash prizes.

Aileen McNicholl, Manager of Eurospar said: “This is a very worthwhile event which can include the whole community, whether it is through their participation or just their support. It will be a fun day of events with all proceeds going to a good cause so I would appeal to everyone to try and take part.”

Local charity Benbradagh Community Support will be sharing the proceeds from the event.

Community & Youth Co-Ordinator Colleen Harkin said: “We are delighted that Eurospar have asked us to become involved in this years charity run.

“As a new organisation it can at times be a struggle to secure funding but the money raised at this event will go along way to ensuring we can continue to provide very worthwhile and popular projects in the Dungiven area. It is fantastic to see local business giving back to the community.”
