Senior Club Notes – 27th April 2020

Do it for Dan Fundraiser (organised by Daniel Mimnagh)

Killoe GAA are coming together on Sunday the 3rd May to walk/run 400 kilometres in ONE DAY!!!

The reason, we as a club have decided to do this is for a special little man called Dan Donoher. Dan is the son of former Laois Footballers Niall and Aisling Donoher.

Dan is suffering from a rare muscular disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1. Dan has recently just turned 1 and his life expectancy is barely beyond that. Dan and his parents need our help and support to raise $2.1 million dollars for him to receive the medical treatment he needs in America. The medical intervention needed is a cell infusion and is only available in the States.

As you all know, with the Covid-19 restrictions in place, it is near impossible to keep up our usual daily routines. It is a tough time for everyone at the minute and sporting clubs and organisations around the country are no different. We, Killoe GAA have being trying our best to keep our own personal training going in the hope that when things are back to some form of normality, we’ll be ready to go!

However, with football and sport in general seeming to slip further and further away we came together and decided that we would like to keep the personal training going for another, more important reason!

Mindful and respectful of the restrictions currently in place we have decided to run 400km on Sunday week (3rd May). (400K IN A DAY). Each player will map out (within 2km) their own route. They will keep you posted daily with their preparations up until ‘Race Day’ and will post a picture and time of their final run on Sunday
Who can say that they ran 400km in 1 day!!!!?

Please get behind TEAM DAN and contribute what few euro you can. Every little helps! Let’s DO IT FOR DAN. To contribute if you go into the Killoe GAA facebook page you can donate their.
