The South East Fun for Life takes place on Sunday, October 5th in the People’s Park, Waterford. It’s guaranteed to be a jam-packed family fun day and all for a great cause, the South East Cancer Foundation.
There is a full programme of events on the day including bouncy castles, climbing walls, rodeo bull, balloon modeling, kids races, Waterford United Penalty Shoot Out, along with a farmer’s market and much more. The People’s Park will also be home to the finish line of the Solas Centre South East Run for Life and Beat 102 103 will be broadcasting live from the event.
All volunteers in the Park on the day will be wearing the winning design of this years T-Shirt competition sponsored by Datapac. The competition was open to 5thand 6th Class students throughout Waterford and Wexford with the winning design chosen by Sean Corcoran of The Art Hand. Not only will the winner see their design being worn throughout the Park on the Day but they will also receive a Sporthouse School Bag full of goodies along with a trip to Hasbro Toy Factory for their entire class. Two runners up will also receive Sporthouse School Bags. All entries will be displayed in the Park so come along and see these fabulous fun designs.
The Fun for Life is the family-centric part of the day as the Solas Centre South Run for Life gets under way that day on the Quay at 12.30. Thousands of runners, walkers and joggers are expected to complete the 10 mile course and finish in the People’s Park.
According to Clair Moriarty, South East Run for Life Committee Chair, the Fun for Life was created to ensure the participants in the South East Run for Life, their families and friends can all enjoy a great day for a great cause.
“We are hoping to increase on last years numbers with participants coming from all over the South East, so we want to ensure that their families and friends are well looked after and entertained while the runners undertake the more taxing 10 mile run.”
However, Clair added the Fun for Life is for everyone and wants to encourage as many people to come along and enjoy the teeming fun line up.
“The entertainment is guaranteed to appeal to all ages. Beat 102-103 will be broadcasting live from the People’s Park, there will be face painters, bouncy castles and a rodeo bull. The Farmers Market will also be there with a wide and tasty selection of fresh artisan treats and refreshments.”
The event is organised by Ian Power of Sporthouse, who were thrilled to be involved with the Solas Centre Fun for Life in aid of the South East Cancer Foundation, which is such a deserving cause.
So this weekend, whether you’re participating in the Solas Centre South East Run for Life or you just want to enjoy a few hours of great family fun you won’t want to miss the Fun for Life Day at the People’s Park, Waterford on Sunday, October 5th from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.
