The Kevin Fogarty Run begins in Templetuohy on this Saturday June 3rd at 8am. Run, Jog or Walk 5k to remember Kevin.
Sports stars Niall Quinn, Noel McGrath and Mark Walsh were on hand to launch a fundraising drive for Kevin’s young family. The Fogarty family – originally from Co. Tipperary, but living in Co. Kildare – lost husband and father Kevin Fogarty (aged 32) just before Christmas, when he died suddenly while on a family holiday in the UK.
Now, in the aftermath of Kevin’s untimely death, friends and family-members from Tipperary and Kildare are joining forces to hold a fundraising run in his memory. The Kevin Fogarty Home2Home Run will see six of his closest friends run from Templetuohy in Tipperary to Clane in Kildare on Saturday, 3rd June – a total distance of 125km. All monies raised from the run will go directly to support Kevin’s family.
