The ECHM Donation Celebration Evening will be in Healy’s Bar, Rostellan at 8pm this Friday the 8th of November. Everyone is invited down to join in the celebration and finger food will be served on the night. The night will also celebrate the 3rd birthday of East Cork Harbour Fitness. It would be great to see as many as possible come down, especially anyone who helped in any way in the running of this incredible community event.
Each year proceeds are divided between Local Community Initiatives and Marymount Hospice. So during the evening donation cheques will be presented to the worthy benefactors from this year’s marathon which include the 3 national schools of our parish, the Aghada Sea Scouts and of course Marymount, our official race charity partner, who will receive €13,500 euro.
Since the inaugural 2016 event, the breakdown has been as follows;
Total race funds raised since 2016: €97,338.29 (Local Community Initiatives: €59,025.70 and Marymount Hospice: €38,312.59)
