Athletics legend Catherina McKiernan and The western Hotel support PREDA Ecard campaign "Use your cents to end their sentence"
Catherina was a guest of The Western Hotel in Galway, home of PREDA Galway for her stay in Galway during the Run For Freedom in 2012. The support of Mr. Eugene Keville and the staff at The Western Hotel, has been crucial in supporting the staging of PREDA benefit concerts by Damien Dempsey and numerous PREDA event over the years.
The PREDA 5k "Run For Freedom" 2014 will take place at the famed Ballybrit Racecourse in Galway on Saturday the 1st of March at 12pm. Online registration on www.runireland.com is now open. Registration takes place in front of the main stand from 10am on the morning of the run.
The run will be on the road surrounding the race track and will consist of two 2.5k laps.
The event is being organised by volunteers so all the profits will be used to help with the rehabilitation of the rescued children and also to help promote the message of PREDA to a wider audience nationally. PREDA is also assisting with the typhoon relief effort in the Philippines and has a team of social workers assisting children who have lost their family in the natural disaster.
Entry to the racecourse is through the Ballybrit road entrance.
Also a comedy night for PREDA begins at 8pm that very evening . ‘Fun for Freedom’ in The Roisin Dubh features Maeve Higgins with The Sunday Times describing her as being ‘Like a Shakespearian court jester, her daftness masks perceptive truth-telling’. Support act Gearoid Farrelly has been called ‘The next big thing in comedy’ by The Irish Independent with Chris Kent offering ‘A perfect mix of dry confidence and razor sharp wit.” Tickets cost €18 (special reduction for Freedom Runners!) Available from The Roisin Dubh and OMG, Shop Street .
