AON Mullingar Half Marathon funds presented to TEAM
The funds raised through the 2020 and 2021 AON Mullingar Half Marathons, totalling €36,500, have been handed over to the charity partner of the event, TEAM (Temporary Emergency Accommodation Midlands).
A spokesperson for the half marathon organising committee said they were delighted to make the presentation: “These funds are of great benefit to TEAM – they have not been able to fundraise as normal during the Covid pandemic, but they had to continue to provide the service.
“This would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors and supporters, in particular AON Insurance, ORS Hydration Tablets, Colton SEAT, Mullingar, Annebrook House Hotel, Westmeath County Council, An Garda Síochána, Westmeath Civil Defence, Hughes Eurospar, Buckley’s SuperValu, Fox’s Fruit and Veg, Waterways Ireland, Westmeath GAA, Colas Roadbridge JV, Fencescape Ltd, C Lynch Waste Management, Cullion Hurling and Camogie Club and all our volunteers, supporters and participants.”
The full volunteer committee are: Murty Hanly, Nuala-Anne Curley, Terry Toal, Richard Toal, Berty Dunne, Siobhan Flaherty, Mary Hughes, Martin Marshall, Robert Troy, Ken Whitelaw, Padraic Murtagh and Joan Mulvihuill.
The 2022 Mullingar Half Marathon will take place on St Patrick’s Day, Thursday March 17, and entries are now open at www.mullingarhalfmarathon.com.
The beneficial charity will again be TEAM in 2022.
