The draw for Roar for Ruairi which was suspended because of Covid-19 will take place over the next few days. 

The draws will be streamed live via Facebook. We hope that all of our friends and supporters are keeping safe at this difficult time.

Roar for Ruairi

4k for Ruairi (Roar for Ruairi) encourages people to use their daily exercise to run, walk, swim or cycle 4km, donate €10 or whatever you can afford. 

The Roar for Ruairi campaign which was launched back in February stalled during the covid 19 pandemic and so did their fundraising activities, so we are hopeful as many as possible will participate.

Ruairi's Dad, Martin McDonnell, comes from Ballycastle. 

We are encouraging as many people to take part at 11am on Saturday 23rd May.

All you have to do to take part is screenshot your donation on the Go Fund Me page along with a picture of when you finish and we'll publish them on our social media platforms 

The Go Fund Me link is:
