The Treadmill Challenge at Stillorgan Village
Stillorgan Village are proudly supporting Fr. Tony Coote’s Walk While You Can Event. This is a Community Event where we are inviting the public to join us at Stillorgan Village from Thursday 21st June until Saturday 23rd June between 11am until 5pm while we aim to walk the equivalent distance of Fr Tony’s walk from Letterkenny to Ballydehob – 545 kms in total.
About the fundraising drive
In March 2018 our local parish administrator Fr Tony was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. For a man with untold energy levels as well as a contagious zest for life, this news came as a bolt of lightning. Tony found himself part of a vastly under-resourced medical world of lengthy waiting lists and over-burdened medics. Never one to be struck down by adversity, Tony came to the decision to walk the length of Ireland in order to raise funds and to help highlight the need for further funding in this area.
