Notice: Mark Dalton Virtual 5k - 1st to 5th April 2021

With the lack of physical races at the moment, here is a good virtual 5k to target in April. All you have to do is buy a T-shirt to support this worthy cause. Details below...


On Thursday, December 3rd 2020, Mark Dalton, his twin brother Tom, and three friends were
involved in a serious car accident. Mark received exceptional care from the first responders,
paramedics, staff at Cork University Hospital and the Spinal Unit of the Mater Hospital. Despite
their efforts, he has been left with major trauma to his spine.

Mark is currently at the beginning of his rehabilitation journey which will continue in the National
Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire for the next considerable period of time. Mark is a 5th year student in Pobalscoil na Tríonóide in Youghal, Co Cork, where he has made a lasting impression.

The main goal of this Virtual 5K Run/ Walk is to bring Mark back to a suitably modified home.

We want to contribute to the overall fundraising goal as considerable alterations are necessary
in the Dalton home. We, his School Pals have set up this Virtual 5K Run/ Walk to assist Mark on
his journey.

Thank you for your support
