As many of you are aware, St. Francis Hospice fundraising has been massively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic over the last year. So again Alan Beaddie has stepped up to the plate and is organising a fundraiser for St Francis.
So the plan is we are going to work together throughout March to raise as much money as possible for St. Francis and at the same time we will all get much needed exercise!
The distance we are trying to cover between us, is the distance from Dublin to the four major tennis tournaments that make up the Grand Slams – Wimbledon (London), French Open (Paris), US Open (New York) and Australian Open (Melbourne) – a total of just over 23,000km.
You can walk, run, cycle do a gym/yoga/pilates session, go for a swim, do tennis drills and challenges and everything adds up to our overall 23km goal.
For ease of calculation, a gym/ yoga/pilates session, a swim, Alan/Oktay’s online tennis sessions or challenges etc each equate to 5 kilometres.
Alan will post weekly drills for juniors, so everyone can take part.
So if you would like to take part, please just email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep track.
You can join from the start or at any time during the month of March.
The more participants we have, the better our chance of reaching our goal and the more funds we raise?
So join in the fun, make your donation while raising much needed funds for St. Francis Hospice https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11398348_alan-beaddie-s-page.html
We ask you to contribute whatever you can, whenever you can throughout the month. You can invite friends and family to take part (no matter where in world they are).
Once a week you will be reminded to email your personal/family/friends total kilometres clocked for the previous week.
We will publish our progress – distance and financially regularly on our club emails and it will also be posted on the CLTC Facebook Page and Website/News Section.
It’s a big step and challenge, but we can do this and get on the road to the Majors. LET’S DO IT TOGETHER !!
