Ballinascreen Round the World Challenge

Earlier this year the club completed a floodlit walkway at Dean McGlinchey Park. This facility is available to use, free of charge, for the whole community. We can’t say how delighted we are to see how popular the walkway has been with all generations right across the community.

The walkway will be officially opened on Friday, 24th September and to coincide with this we are launching a unique challenge in which everyone can participate. As part of the exciting challenge we aim to raise funds for:

S.T.E.P.S and Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group
Upkeep of the walkway
Underage development in the club.

What is the challenge?

From Friday 24th September to Sunday 17th October (extended from 3rd October) we are looking to engage as many members of our community as possible, along with their family and friends across the globe to come together and achieve the impossible: walk/run/cycle/swim/hike/crawl around the world!!!

Can we cover the 25,000 miles required?!
