Families invited to take part in Run‘n’Roll event for Irish Wheelchair Association

An amazing cause.

This Sunday (September 3rd) will see the return of the Irish Wheelchair Association's (IWA) Run'n'Roll family fun run in Dublin.

Participants will run, stroll, and roll in 2.5km or 5km races to support and promote an inclusive society for people with disabilities and raise funds for IWA.

With the support of Liberty Insurance, 100% of race registration fees will go to IWA, with their partnership slogan being #MovedbyValues.

People of all ages, families, and abilities are welcome to join in a relaxed, fun, and family-friendly atmosphere at St. Anne’s Park, Raheny.

For the kiddies, there will be free face painting and ice cream vouchers.

For parents, coffee will be available. Goodie bags will also be given to all participants upon finishing the race.

Disability activists Jack Kavanagh and sports journalist Joanne O'Riordan will also be in attendance on the day.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Joanne is urging people to support the cause.

"It’s great to have this race for inclusivity back again. There was a really good turnout last year and a fantastic atmosphere on the day.

"Hopefully this year can be even better. I’d love to see as many people as possible Run’n’Roll with us in St. Anne’s Park!"

Last year, the Run'n'Roll event raised upwards of €17,000 for IWA following its debut in Ireland and Northern Ireland.


Registration for the races costs €20 and will go directly to IWA.

With that, Liberty Ireland will also make a €1 donation to IWA for every participant in the race.

Participants can register for the race here: https://www.popupraces.ie/race/iwa-run-n-roll-2023-proudly-supported-by-liberty-insurance/

All participants who register for the race will receive a specially designed commemorative t-shirt and medal as part of their welcome pack.

So, get on your marks and support a more inclusive Ireland this weekend with the family if you can.
