MOHER HILL 7K IN AID OF BREAST CANCER IRELAND
Every year Upperchurch Drombane GAA host the Moher Hill 7k charity fundraiser with a different organisation or local group picked each time as the beneficiary. Runners or walkers take on the challenging 7km route from Upperchurch village, over Moher Hill and back to the starting point outside the community hall. For 2023 our chosen charity is Breast Cancer Ireland and all proceeds raised will go directly to this very worthwhile cause. The race will be held on Sunday December 31st with the walk starting at 12pm while the runners will get underway at 12:30pm. As usual prizes will be given to the first home in each category. Donations can be made here on our gofundme page(www.gofundme.com/moher-hill-7k-2023) or on the day of the race at Upperchurch Hall. Entry fees for the race/walk will be taken on the day and adult entry is €10 while Kids are Free!! Best of luck to all taking part. Please dig deep and support this vital charity
