Run, walk or push 1000 km in one year

Sligo Rovers are partnering with Nazareth Nursing Home Sligo and Ballymote Community Nursing Unit in 500 km/1000 km Challenge in aid of both nursing homes.

Together, they challenge you to get out and about and to cover 500km or 1000km in one year all while raising funds for this very worthy cause.

Walk it, jog it, run it or even dance it. The choice is yours. You will need to walk just 1.4km every day to cover the 500km in the year and double it to cover the 1000km. You may already be a keen walker or runner and achieve this over a number of marathons or you may be starting off from the couch to 5km, either way, do it your way.

Take this on as a personal challenge, or better still, get your family, friends and colleagues involved.

Whatever way you take part, the sponsorship you raise is supporting Nazareth Nursing Home Sligo and Ballymote Community Nursing Unit to build and refurbish their Nursing homes, so that people living there have the most comfortable homes where they can live out their lives in style.

Each participant will receive a medal and certificate on completion of the challenge.

Sligo Rovers are delighted to be supporting our neighbours with the campaign, further evidence to the club being at the heart of the community once again.
