The South East Fun for Life Day takes place on Sunday, October 14th 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 full programme of events on the day including bouncy castles, bungee trampolines, a hot air balloon along with a farmer’s market, “Stars For Life” kids fun races, a magician, balloon modellers and the People’s Park will also be home to the finish line of the Solas Centre South East Run for Life. Torann Drummers will welcome the runners home at the finish line and Art Hands will run an art workshop throughout the afternoon.
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 Jonathan Earl, South East 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 increase on last years numbers of runners and walkers and hit the 2,000 mark. 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 Earl added 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 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 mega slide. The Farmers Market will also be there with a wide and tasty selection of fresh artisan treats and refreshments.”
The event is organised by Bank of Ireland, who were delighted 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 14th from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.
