Walk, run or cycle, it’s up to you which activity to take on – but the goal is the same – to raise funds for St Francis Special school in Beaufort.

Over the next two weeks members of Killarney Macra na Feirme are hosting the event with a €1,000 fundraising target for the school to help provide educational programmes for students.

“We are having a fundraiser in aid of St Francis Special School in Beaufort through a GoFundMe page,” Ger Foley, PRO of Killarney Macra na Feirme said.

“We know people going to the school. They were a charity for this year’s Ring of Kerry Cycle but as this was cancelled we decided to do something to help. We are asking people to set their own target and walk, run or cycle over the next two weeks and to give a donation in aid of St Francis Special School.”

Send on your photos to the Killarney Macra na Feirme Facebook page and they will post them up.

“For more details of the event check Killarney Macra na Feirme Facebook page and get out there and make a difference!” he said.
