Freaky Family FUNdraiser

This Halloween all four Family Resource centres in Roscommon are appealing for people to support their Christmas food and toy appeal for families in need throughout County Roscommon. The aim of the fundraiser is to raise funds to help the FRCs to provide food and toys to families in need at Christmas time.

This year’s fundraising event sees a weekend of freaky fun run’s which include a family 5km virtual fun run and an individual 10km virtual run. The good thing about a virtual run is that individuals and families can do it on their own terms. They can run at any location, outside or on a treadmill, at their own pace, alone or with their family, and they can complete their virtual run at a time that suits them over the Halloween week-end.

Individuals and families can register for these fun runs by completing a registration form at a Family Resource Centre (FRC) closest to them.
Roscommon Family Resource Centres are located in the following areas:
Ballaghaderreen FRC
Boyle FRC
Castlerea FRC
South Roscommon FRC

Registration can also be completed by donating here. 

Families/Individuals can complete their run at a time and location that is convenient to them over the spooky week-end (whilst adhering to government guidance and ensuring to maintain a safe social distance) and upload their results and photos before 10pm on Monday 2nd November, details on poster and will be available on social media. 

Families and individuals are asked to dress in Halloween costume for whatever fun run they choose to complete. There will be medals for the first one hundred individual runners and trophies for the first fifty families to commemorate their run.

All children who participate in the event will also receive a Halloween activity pack which can be collected at the FRC of their choice.

For those who fear the freaky fun runs they can donate to this great cause by sponsoring the frightful fiend fleeing from Boyle FRC to Ballaghaderreen FRC on Friday 30th October.

Roscommon woman Judy Kelly (AKA the Frightful fiend) will run and may even take to her broom as she journeys the 25km route from Boyle FRC to Ballaghaderreen FRC.
