Ronan Scully of Operation Transformation fame was on hand last week to launch the 8th Annual 4mile run/walk in aid of Dochas – Offaly Cancer Support Group which will take place on Sunday May 1, 2011.

This event is being run in association with Tullamore Harriers and the former Boston Scientific staff. The event is AAI approved and it caters for the serious runner and fun runners/walkers.

Dochas is an Offaly Cancer Support Group and they are asking all the people in County Offaly to support this most worthwhile event. Entry to the event is €15 or by filling up a sponsorship card. Sponsorship cards are available from Dochas at 05795 28268

The run/walk will begin at 11.30am sharp at the Tullamore Harriers Club on the Charleville Rd, Tullamore and is expected to be very well attended as per previous years. Registration will take place from 9.30am to 11.15am and all participants are asked to come early to ensure that they are registered in time for the start. T Shirts will be given to the first 200 people registered.

You don’t have to be an athlete to take part, it’s a fun run. We would like to encourage as many people as possible to enter

Following the run there is tea/coffee and home baking and an opportunity for a chat and to meet people. Dochas depends on fundraising and this is one of their main annual fundraising events.
