You'd Walk a Million miles for one of her smiles

RAHENY are holding a nice event this Saturday. It's a Family 3km Walk (1pm).

It begins and ends at the Raheny clubhouse. It will be followed by fun activities, while John O'Brien and Friends will be providing a traditional music session.

It's to support the Climb4Clare Foundation. Clare Clarke was an inspirational person that was deeply involved in Ladies Football.

CLIMB stands for Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery. It's a programme for children, aged 5-12, who are experiencing the impact of a loved one coping with cancer.

The programme helps to give them a better understanding of the illness.

"The first Climb Programme was recently completed at ARC House," explains Lyn Savage of the LGFA.

"The response was exceptional. Clare did not see the Programme, but she passed away knowing that her hard work would leave a legacy forever.

"And with the help of clubs and counties, we can ensure that the good work continues."

With that in mind, all clubs are urged to support Raheny's initiative this Saturday, and also the Hell and Back Challenge at Kilruddery House, Bray next September 12th.

Clubs can get sponsorship for the Hell and Back, with 50 per cent of their funds going to Climb4Clare and the other 50 per cent going to the club. www.ladiesgaelic.ie
