Almac launches Fun Run to support Air Ambulance Northern Ireland

Almac Fun Run

The Almac Group has launched their annual Fun Run event at Craigavon Lakes on Saturday, May 25 at 11.30am to raise vital funds for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland.

The event, which includes a 5km and 10km route around the lakes, is open to everyone to run, jog or walk. Everyone who takes part will receive a medal, t-shirt and goodie bag when they complete the Fun Run.

Orla Tumelty, Almac Group, said: “We are delighted to announce this year’s Almac Fun Run in support of Air Ambulance Northern Ireland. This is the third time we have held the fun run and it always proves to be a really great event for seasoned runners and novices alike.

“We’re hoping that even more participants than ever before will join us to support this great cause. Whether you’re considering signing up as a group, by yourself or with your family for a bit of fun or as a challenge, we’d love to see you there.”

Colleen Milligan, Business Development Manager, Air Ambulance Northern Ireland said: “We are hugely grateful to Almac for choosing us as the charity to be supported through this fantastic community fun run! It takes £2.5 million each year to sustain operations at Air Ambulance and we rely on donations from the public to sustain and develop the service.

“This support from Almac will help us to continue to provide outstanding critical care where and when it’s needed most. We look forward to supporting the runners on the day!”

Entry costs £10 for 5k and £15 for 10k with all proceeds going to Air Ambulance Northern Ireland. Registration closes on 20th May at 5pm. Spaces are limited so please enter early to avoid disappointment. A chip timing will be available for everyone who completes the course.
