We’re so excited for the CAFOD Fun Run which takes place on Tuesday 27th December at
The Mystery, Wavertree Sports Park, Liverpool, L15 4LE.
Mary Coghlan is a long standing CAFOD Parish Volunteer from Christ the King in Wavertree. Last year, Mary took part in the CAFOD Fun Run along with Sister Pat. Mary says, ‘I love the CAFOD Fun Run! Its one of my favourite events of the year and I would recommend it to everyone. It’s a real family fun day and an opportunity to come together with a variety of people from all over to support an incredibly cause. Bring your friends, family and your dog, everyone is welcome and its such a lovely day to enjoy together!’
This year’s CAFOD Fun Run will be supporting the Ethiopia Food Crisis, where ten million people are facing a crippling drought. Severe and extreme weather shifts, part of the El Niño effect, mean that the rains in Ethiopia have failed twice. Farmers are losing their crops, water sources are drying up, and families are struggling to keep themselves and their animals alive. As a result, an estimated 400,000 children are suffering from malnutrition and millions are in need of emergency food and clean water. Money raised from the CAFOD Fun Run will be used to scale up our work and reach more vulnerable women, men and children with life-saving aid.
Remember you can run, walk or toddle and dogs are welcome too! If taking part isn’t for you, perhaps enjoying a cup of tea, buying a raffle ticket and listening to entertaining jazz music from local band, The Rioters, would be more enjoyable. There is something for everyone at the CAFOD Fun Run so please do come along and support this event!
