A group of Vitalograph Ireland staff have committed to part-take in the Special Olympics Ireland 5 iconic walks Challenge.
From Tuesday the 25th of August to Saturday 29th they are going to do walks in different parts of County Clare of not less than 5 kilometers per day.
This is a very worthy charity and the following link provides details on the eventhttps://www.specialolympics.ie/ways-to-give/fundraising-events/physical-challenges/your-5-iconic-walks-challenge.
The fund-raising is primarily to support their ‘Together at Home’ Programme providing support to Special Olympics athletes during these challenging times.

We will also put a donations box in the Ennis canteen in the coming days.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope we can give some support to this worthy cause.
Just a final BIG THANK YOU to everyone that walked and also to everyone else for their support.
We have reached a total of €2,144 which is far beyond our expectations.
Special Olympics are delighted with the response and also thank everyone for the generous contribution
I have just counted the jar in the Canteen and it gave a total of €110.75 which is very generous considering the amount of online donations also made by staff.
I have made a payment of this to the online system so the grand total raised now sits at €1,600.
Thanks again to everyone for being so generous,
Friday was a showery day but well worth it for the views from the top of the 12 O’Clock Hills in Kilkishen
