“Red FM are delighted to be involved in this prestigious Cork event. We want to make the 10th anniversary of the Cork City Marathon the biggest and best one yet – but we need your help! We have officially launched our new charity initiative #RUNWITHRED,” said Colm Moore, Presenter on Cork’s Red FM, producer of The Neil Prendeville Show and avid marathon runner.
“All the Red FM presenters will be running – alongside hundreds of Red FM listeners to help raise vital funds for some amazing Cork charities. We want to get lots of people involved – but you don’t have to be super fit! We will be on hand with training advice and motivation to get you there! We have lots of other tweaks and ideas for the day itself that we feel will make the 2016 marathon definitely one to remember,”
“We are looking for relay teams consisting of 5 people – call on friends, family, colleagues, workmates, college buddies, team mates, the locals in your pub, the girls at bingo – whoever! But if you are super fit and planning on running the full or half marathon and want to get involved – you can!” added Colm.
Run with all the Red FM presenters and hundreds of like-minded Red FM listeners to raise money for some great Cork charities including CUH Children’s Unit / Suicide Aware / Cork Penny Dinners / Cork Arc House (Cancer Support) / Breakthrough Cancer Research / Enable Ireland.
“And remember, all the money raised by #RUNWITHRED stays in Cork!” he added.
