Jolly Joggers:
Jolly Joggers present €5500 to SOSAD Due to COVID the Jolly Joggers annual New Years Day run took place virtually in 2021. This year was the 12th annual run and over the previous 11 years in excess of €60,000.00 has been presented to cancer charities. This year the chosen charity was SOSAD. Due to the pandemic, many people have found their mental health challenged and SOSAD are available to anyone who might need to avail of their services. A Gofund Me page was set up and people were asked to make a donation and complete 6k /10k run or walk in their own time between New Years Day and Jan 6th. The Jolly Joggers were overwhelmed by the response and are so pleased to be able to donate €5,500 to SOSAD. We would like to thank all our sponsors and all those who made donations and completed the run/walk. We also appreciate the assistance given by Rory Geary and the Northern Standard and by Emyvale.net. Although it was a very different Jolly Joggers New Years Day Run, it was lovely to see so many sending in their photos of themselves and family groups after completing their run/walk. Hopefully New Years Day 2022 will see us return to the usual format. In the meantime stay safe everyone and thank you once again.

2022 Presentation. On a wet and windy Saturday morning, February 5th 2022, The Jolly Joggers presented a cheque for €5000 and a further €110 in cash to Olga Gilliland, who received it on behalf of The Clogher Diocese Lourdes Assisted Pilgrims Fund. This was the proceeds from their virtual New Years Day run. Olga expressed delight and gratitude at the amount raised and said that unfortunately due to Covid there will be no pilgrimage this year but hopefully next year will go ahead and that the committee will give the Joggers an opportunity to nominate a few people from the area who might benefit from the pilgrimage. The Jolly Joggers would like to express their gratitude to everyone who donated, to the sponsors and to everyone who took part in the virtual run/walk. They also want to thank Rory Geary and the Northern Standard and Peadar McMahon and Emyvale.Net and to Northern Sound for media coverage. Hopefully next New Year’s Day we will be able to have the run as normal. We look forward to seeing you all then.
