Entering its third year, the popular Renville Park 5K – held in association with Level One Serviced Office Space – will take place on Wednesday 24th July at 8pm in Renville Park, Oranmore, Co.Galway. Proceeds from the event are going to local charity ACT for Meningitis. The charity aims to raise awareness of meningitis while also supporting families and individuals affected.
Speaking of the event Siobhan Carroll of ACT said “We are thrilled to be once again a part of the amazing Renville park 5k. Due to the wonderful support of so many people last year we were able to offer continued support services including counselling and play therapy. This year’s event will assist us in reaching more families and raise awareness of Meningitis. Knowing the signs of meningitis may just save a life.”
Linda Burke, managing director of Level One, said: “Level One is delighted to manage this event for a third year. Meningitis is an illness which can affect anybody and Siobhan & her team at ACT are doing wonderful work. We have had such an amazing turn out for the past two years and are again hopeful all runners will get the running shoes on!”
