The Rathcormac Mud Challenge is on 13th September it is a 5k route with both man-made and natural obstacles which is suitable for all levels of fitness. Funds raised are in aid of the Sinead Shines In spite of Lyme Appeal (http://www.sineadshines.org). Registration is available online athttp://rathcormacmudchallenge.com/index.php/registration.
Money raised at the event will be donated to the Sinead Shines In Spite of Lyme Fundraising Campaign to raise the funds needed to send 15 year old Sinead Kearney to America for treatment.
Since contracting Lyme disease four years ago Sinead has felt constantly week and exhausted. Sometimes she is unable to lift a spoon, other times her legs are so weak she needs to use a wheel chair. Sinead suffers chronic pain in every part of her body and has missed many weeks at school in recent months. Having recently had tests done in Germany it is now hoped that Sinead will get her life back to normal with the help of treatment available in America.
