Today December 1st 2011 Paul Fallon leads a team of fundraisers as he attempts to run 1000 miles and raise money to fight against homelessness. We are helping their fundraising efforts by sponsoring a motorhome as a support vehicle for Paul and his team.
See Paul’s outline of what he’ll be doing and how he’s hoping to raise much needed funds.
This December I will be running 1000 miles around Ireland to try to raise funds for the homeless charity that I started back in January, On The Road Again.
- Our target is to try to raise €100,000 for OTRA.
- To help us reach this goal, we are holding events in 8 cities & towns around Ireland during my run.
- We hope to get 1000 people to sign up on our website, and for each person to try to raise €100.
I realise that these are tough times economically for a lot of people, so we have set up a page with sponsor.ie so that you can ask your friends, colleagues etc to sponsor you.
We should also have sponsorship cards available shortly, people can email me and I will make sure that they receive them.
I want to try to get at least 125 people to run a mile with me at each location highlighted in the itinerary. see www.otra.ie
Lots more details are available on our website.
We also have set up a facebook page here, https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=290233111004829
As you can imagine, I will need a lot of assistance due to the nature of the event. I will need a camper van to follow me around the country so that I can stop off to change clothes, get warm, rest, eat etc. (I plan to run approx 2hrs each morning & 3hrs in the afternoon)
I have recruited a number of people to help me along the way. I have 3 drivers and also I will have the help of a P.A.
Good luck Paul and your team from all of us in Celtic Campervans. We hope you raise the much needed funds for this worthy cause.
