north west 10k

The North West 10k committee is now inviting charities to make applications for this year's 10k run and walk in Letterkenny which takes place on Sunday, May 1st.

It’s the 20th anniversary of the charity race and walk so this year’s event will be a special occasion for the organisation, 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.

The closing date for applications is Friday 29th January and applications should be sent to Anne Condon, Grand Canal Building, Paddy Harte Road, Letterkenny or email
