Ger Deegan, Regional Director Special Olympics Munster said - “This is our biggest annual fundraising event and as such is of huge importance to us.

“We need volunteers to help us collect on the day to ensure we are successful. Even a few hours will make a huge difference to us. Every donation we receive on April 27th will help us to further realise our promise of changing the lives of people with Intellectual Disabilities throughout Munster”.
