We have a very active bunch within the HORSE FIRST TEAM so much so they raised a substantial amount of money for local charity ‘Run For Autism H.A.N.D’ by completing a 10 mile walk and half marathon on Saturday 5th October in Newtownhamilton.
Run For Autism H.A.N.D.(Helping Autism in Newry and District) is a local charity, formed by a group of parents, family members and friends in 2008. The specific aim of the organisation is to give a helping HAND to Autistic People and their families in this locality. Our focus is to raise funds for and awareness of Autism. We, therefore, organised our first Run/Walk in October 2008 and, encouraged by its huge success, we decided to make it an annual event.
Anthony Murphy completed the 10 mile run, Bernice Quinn completed the 10 mile walk and Gaye Ferris managed to steal the show by completing the half marathon!
Were very proud of all the guys and maybe this time next year ALL of the HORSE FIRST team will take part!
