Jolly Joggers:
The Jolly Joggers presented €5,000 to the North Monaghan Cancer Treatment Support group on Monday night February 25th 2019. This brings the total funding presented to this organisation by the Joggers to €56,000 during the ten years that they have organised the New Year’s Day Run in Emyvale. This year, as well, a donation has been presented to the local Red Cross, which has provided the necessary medical back-up for the Run on each of the ten years. At the presentation to the Monaghan Cancer Treatment Support, Geraldine McAree, coordinator of the Jolly Joggers, thanked everyone who has supported and/or sponsored the New Year’s Day Run. It takes a large number of volunteers to run an event of this magnitude and she expressed appreciation to all who assisted with the work and a special mention for the members of the Jolly Joggers. Maeve Hackett, who accepted the presentation, thanked the Joggers and praised their efforts to raise this magnificent sum, which has been of great benefit to a large number of Cancer sufferers and their families and she highlighted the various ways in which the support Group has been able to assist. In conclusion Geraldine stated that the Joggers look forward to continuing the Run and expressed the hope that the great support from the local and wider community will continue in the years ahead.
Joggers Launch New Years Day Run. The Jolly Joggers have launched their 11th running of the now annual New Year’s Day Run in Emyvale. This year the beneficiary of the proceeds will be the Challenge for Elaine Tate. Elaine is a teacher in St. Mary’s National School, Glaslough, who has suffered a life-changing reaction to treatment she was receiving for her illness and her home has to be specially adapted to accommodate her needs. Big numbers usually participate in this event and it is hoped that the cause this year will attract even larger numbers. As every other year, there will be a 10k and a 6k Fun Run starting at 12 noon. Headquarters will be in Emyvale Leisure Centre and we thank the Emyvale Community Council for the use of the facility. The entry fee will be €10 for adults and €5 for children and there will be prizes for the First 3 Ladies and First 3 Men in each of the runs. Registration will take place in the Leisure Centre from 10.00am on New Year’s Day but there will also be an opportunity to register in Monaghan Shopping Centre on Monday 30th December and Tuesday 31st December from 10.00am to 4.00pm each day. There are medals and T- Shirts for the first 700 entrants. So why not start 2020 in a healthy and fun way by taking part and walkers are very welcome. News has just come in that the Guest of Honour to officially start the race will be Helen Steele, who has been a good friend to the Joggers and is delighted to be the official Starter.
