North West 10k Committee

Following Thursday evening’s AGM the incoming North West 10k committee will get down to work after Christmas for the 20th anniversary of the charity race and walk.

Sunday the 1st of May will be a special occasion for the organization, which staged its first North West 10k event in 1997.

Over the past 19 years a total of 709,000 euros has been raised for a broad spectrum of worthy causes. The 2014 event yielded €27,757 with the four charities getting €6,939 each.

Early in New Year interested charities will be invited to make applications to be the beneficiaries of the 20th North West 10k.

Following confirmation of the successful charity organizations there will be a number of fundraising initiatives undertaken ahead of the race and walk to maximize the financial returns for the groups.
