Cork City FC wish to confirm that the 2020 Liam Miller Memorial 5K Run, in association with Marymount, will take place as a virtual event.
Entry is €10 for adults, €5 for U-16s and €20 for a family entry (two adults and two U16). You can register via Eventbrite or through CCFC.ie/5k.
The 5K is for both serious and casual runners, wheelchair rollers, and walkers, of any age. Being active by running, jogging, or walking is to be encouraged; evidence shows that undertaking physical activity can help to prevent disease, maintain a healthy weight, and promote mental health and well-being.
Speaking after details of the event were confirmed, Cork City Chairman Declan Carey said: “This fundraiser has become a staple on our calendar of community and charity work. We’re proud to work with Marymount and also honour Liam Miller. This event takes an enormous effort from all the club’s volunteers and I’m sure it will be a great success as always and raise vital funds.”
Commenting on behalf of the Miller family, Mrs. Bridie Miller, Liam’s mother, said: “We are looking forward again to this now annual event. We are very pleased that Cork City FC and Marymount are working together to remember Liam and to raise money for very worthwhile causes. We would encourage people to participate or contribute if they are able to do so.”
John Kennedy, head of the organising committee said: “This event has now become established in the calendar, and we are very much looking forward to it once again. Unfortunately, with the current Covid-19 situation, this will be a virtual event as opposed to a physical one, but this gives City fans all over Ireland and further afield the opportunity to get involved. Most of all, we are proud to remember Liam and to run this important fundraiser.”
