The Heart of Galway Challenge in conjunction with 56 Central and Foróige, is a 7km walk or jog along Galway’s most scenic route with lots of quirky challenges along the way.
Project IMPACT aims to build a worldwide community that supports helps and encourages local projects in their area. Project IMPACT will be coming in to support existing charities and those who need a helping hand to get back on their feet.
The Heart of Galway Challenge is setting out to raise €12,000 for Foróige Big Brother Big Sister in Galway. Big Brothers Big Sisters is an internationally recognised youth mentoring programme that forms supportive friendships for young people inspiring them to brighter futures.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters is a huge part of my life. Over six years ago I first volunteered with the organisation and met my little sister. I am very fortunate in my life and wanted to be part of something that really helped out people who may not have been given the start or the opportunities that I was in their lives. Now my little sister works in 56 Central and through this organisation and the continuing links for me with them, I want to make a bigger impact to the wider Big Brothers Big Sisters community,” explained Gill Carroll of 56 Central.
