Celebrating Lives and Creating Awareness: Join the 12th Duleek Cystic Fibrosis 10k

April 10, 2024

The 12th annual Duleek Cystic Fibrosis (CF) 10k event is underway, bringing together participants from all over the world for a noble cause. Organised by dedicated volunteers and supporters, this event is not just about running; it's about commemorating lives, raising awareness, and contributing to the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.

One of the unique aspects of the event is its virtual format. From April 1st to April 28th, 2024, virtual runners have the opportunity to complete their 10k for Cystic Fibrosis, regardless of their location. This inclusive approach allows individuals of all ages and fitness levels to participate, whether they are seasoned runners or just starting their fitness journey.

The Duleek Cystic Fibrosis 10k Remembrance Run/Walk holds a special significance as it honors the lives of cousins Cathy O'Brien and Kelley Noone, who battled Cystic Fibrosis. It also pays tribute to all individuals and families affected by this CF. By participating in this event, participants not only remember these lives but also contribute to increasing public awareness about CF and supporting Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.

Registration for the event is open online, providing a convenient way for participants to sign up and contribute to the cause. Additionally, those who wish to extend their support can donate through the dedicated fundraising page at https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/12thDuleek10k. Every contribution, big or small, goes a long way in helping the CF community in Ireland.

Over the past 11 years, the Duleek Cystic Fibrosis 10k has been instrumental in raising nearly €250,000. This remarkable achievement underscores the commitment and generosity of participants, sponsors, and supporters who rally together for a common goal - to improve the lives of those affected by CF.

The event's success is not just measured in funds raised but also in the sense of community it fosters and the impact it has on spreading awareness about Cystic Fibrosis. Through social media sharing, participants can amplify their voices and inspire others to join the cause, creating a ripple effect of support.

Whether running in person or virtually, the Duleek Cystic Fibrosis 10k embodies the spirit of resilience and compassion. It's more than a race; it's a testament to the power of coming together for a meaningful purpose, making a difference one step at a time.

As the 12th edition of this impactful event unfolds, let's lace up our shoes and hit the roads! https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/20...
