Run for Ryan !

November 7, 2018

Rahoon Newcastle Hurling Club and Moycullen GAA are coming together to run for Ryan this March. The GAA Clubs will host a 5km run/walk on Sunday 9 March at 2pm- with all proceeds going to the Ryan Croker Benefit Fund.

After sustaining a spinal injury in Australia, 25-year-old Moycullen native Ryan Croker is in a serious condition in an Australian hospital.  This run which is open to everyone is part of a campaign by the people of Moycullen to raise much needed funds for Ryan.

There was good news on Ryans progress over the weekend, where he has moved out of the ICU and onto a normal ward. Doctors hope to be able to do an MRI scan to assess any spinal damage caused by the fall. He is now able to talk to his family and is in good spirits. He is well aware of the fundraising efforts back home and is very humbled  by all the good wishes and support.

The run will kick off at 2pm with registration open from 12:30pm at the Moycullen GAA Grounds. Entry to the race is €15 for adults and €5 for children. For more information, log onto the Ryan Croker Benefit Fund on Facebook or phone Brid on 086-8528774 or Caroline on 087-2897818.
