North West 10K open applications for charity partners for 2017 run

The North West 10K committee is inviting charities in the northwest to make applications for this year’s run and walk in Letterkenny, which takes place on Sunday, April 30.

It’s the bank holiday weekend and will see the 21st staging of the charity event.

The first North West 10k took place in 1997 and the annual event has raised nearly €750,000 for 31 charities so far.

Last year two charities the Irish Pilgrimage Trust and the Spina Bifida organisation each received €8,627 from the charity race and walk.

The closing date for applications is Friday, January 27, and applications should be sent to Anne Condon, Grand Canal Building, Paddy Harte Road, Letterkenny, or via email to [email protected].
