Members of the ActionPoint team have decided to get fit, get healthy and happy and support a very worthy cause by participating in the Barringtons Hospital Great Limerick Run for Special Olympics Ireland. Fourteen members of the team are going to run and walk the Half Marathon on May 4th in the hope of raising vital funds in support of Special Olympics Ireland.
We would really appreciate your support – please donate to our Special Olympics Charity page and you could be in with a chance to win 2 tickets to the Heineken Cup Quarter Final Munster V Toulouse on Saturday 5th April at 1:30pm in Thomond Park.

Speaking of ActionPoint’s involvement, David Jeffreys, MD of ActionPoint, said ‘We decided to run as part of the Great Limerick Run Fittest Company Challenge to get fit and have some fun while doing so. When we heard that Special Olympics Ireland were the official charity partner we decided that we would also come together to raise money in support of the 1,500 athletes coming to Limerick this June for the Special Olympics Ireland Games.’
Special Olympics Ireland announced official charity sponsor of the Great Limerick Run.
On Monday March 10th, we were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the Special Olympics Ireland as official charity sponsor of the Great Limerick Run. We had a great time lending our support and meeting some of the athletes involved.The launch took place at the University of Limerick and we’d like to thank Special Olympics Ireland and ILoveLimerick for inviting us.
