Eloise’s first 10K in Communion dress

Donation protected

On Saturday next, May 2nd Eloise McDonnell, aged 8 had planned to make her First Holy Communion.
To mark this day Eloise, whilst maintaining social distancing and observing all guidelines plans to
walk/run/jog a 10K in Kilmovee in her sister's  communion dress.
Eloise accompanied by her sister Lucia hope to raise money for Mayo Roscommon Hospice.
Last year Eloise participated in her first Kilmovee 5K. Sadly this year our annual 10K & 5K which help
raise vital funds for Mayo Roscommon Hospice could not go ahead. 

Eloise’s Dad Michael passed away from a brain tumour when Eloise was seven months old.

Each year since, the girls have presented the Michael McDonnell Memorial Shield at the annual 10K.
This year on what was hoped to be a very special day Eloise hopes that with your help she will make her own presentation to Mayo Roscommon Hospice in memory of her great Dad Michael.
Eloise means strength & Lucia means light.

We hope to bring some strength and light to those who need it & we will be forever
grateful for the kindness and compassion shown to our family in 2012.
