East Galway Tractor Run returns for another year!

The East Galway Tractor Run 2018 will take place on 11 February this year, all in aid of a very worthy cause.

An entry fee of €20 per tractor will go to Hand in Hand, the children’s cancer charity, which says all tractors are welcome at the event –  new or old!

 Ruairi Gallagher, organiser of the East Galway Tractor Run said theat they are excited to be organising what promises to be another knock out event in the community.

“We feel lucky to be able to help a charity right on our doorstep, all whilst having fun! It’s a great reason to come out with or without your tractor in tow, and join the community in raising money and awareness for a charity that helps families with children diagnosed with cancer throughout Ireland,” he said.

The event will begin at the Athenry Mart where tractors can register between 11.30am and 12.30.

The participating tractors will be departing Athenry Mart at 1.00pm sharp.

“We are so grateful to Ruairi and his fellow organisers for this event,” Laura Bromley, Fundraiser at Hand in Hand stated.

“Last year, this event was a huge success and so many of the local community came out to support the organisers of this event – Ruairi Gallagher, Cormac Hurney, Michael Buckley and Michael O’Connell. It really is a great day out for all!”

Hand in Hand provides a range of practical and emotional support services that help to reduce the impact that a childhood cancer diagnosis has on every effected child and his or her extended family.

The charity works alongside professional services suppliers across the country to provide practical supports with childcare, domestic cleaning, household laundry, and family meals. The aim is to allow families to spend precious time with their child who is undergoing cancer treatment through the provision of these essential support services.
