Normally at this time of the year, all of our athletes are busy racing and preparing for a busy season of athletics leagues and championships. All events are cancelled for the moment. With this in mind how about taking on Rathfarnham Run for HOPE.
 
WHO: Rathfarnham Athletics Members and all their family and friends
 
WHAT: Virtual run from Dublin to Kolkata, 8,500km
 
WHEN: Friday 19th to Sunday 21st June 2020
 
WHERE: Within your area according to government regulations 
 
WHY: To raise much needed funds for The HOPE Foundation in these difficult times.
What do you need to do?
 
1. Go for a run, walk or cycle and track your km on a phone/smartwatch
2. Log your km on the google form link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSezWmi0cNxEkESpubS7HO-1-OeYnM0AL8Abo_1xYplVvYnEmw/viewform
3. Donate to https://give.everydayhero.com/ie/rathfarnham-run-for-hope
4. Share your pictures on social media and tag @rathfarnhamathletics & @thehopefoundation and #rathfarnhamrun4hope
Last year club member Clodagh Cullen travelled to Kolkata with HOPE to see first hand the amazing work they do for some of the most least priviliged children in the world. Her experience was life changing and prompted this event. Kolkata has been impacted by the pandemic of Covid19 and now by Cyclone Amphan. Like many charities their National Fundraising Day was cancelled so please give as much as you can after partaking. As little as 20 euro feeds a family of 5 for two weeks. 
Remember you can log onto the google form as much as you need to over the 3 days and you can use your long sunday run for it!! And juveniles put your club colors on!!
