The Fun for Life Day takes place on Sunday, October 16th 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’ll be bouncy castles, a mega slide, the Wobbly Circus will be there along with a farmer’s market, a “superhero and princess” fancy dress competition and the People’s Park will also be home to the finish line of the Solas Centre South East Run for Life.
The Fun for Life is the family-centric part of the day, as the Solas Centre South East Run for Life gets under way that day at the Clock Tower at 12 noon. Thousands of runners, walkers and joggers are expected to complete the 10 mile course and finish in the People’s Park.
According to Barry Monaghan, Run for Life Committee Chair, the Fun for Life Day 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 match last year’s number of one thousand runners and walkers to take part in the South East Run for Life. These participants will come 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, Mr. Monaghan added that the Fun for Life Day is for everyone and wants to encourage as many people to come along and enjoy the teeming fun line up.
“The entertainment will appeal to all ages. Beat 102-103 will be broadcasting live from the People’s Park, there will be face painters, bouncy castles and the fantastic Wobbly Circus are certain to enthral with their mad cap circus antics. For anyone who fancies a more taxing challenge why not try to scale the Adventure Climbing wall. The Farmers Market will also be there with a wide and tasty selection of fresh artisan treats and refreshments.”
