Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA )Walk While You Can event is taking place this September and it remembers the legacy that Fr Tony Coote left.
Cathy Evans from Castleblaney is organising a Walk While You Can Event in Castleblaney on Sunday 19th of September.
The outreach nursing service provided by the IMNDA helps over 400 people and families spread across 26 counties. This is the only service of its kind in the country and it is funded entirely from public donations so this event is really important.
The event will leave from the Iontas in Castleblayney this wekeend and there will be a donation box as well as a cuppa and cake afterwards... so ahead of this
