Mums in May – “21 in 21”
This year Mums In May challenges members to walk ‘21 in 21’ – this can be 21 yards, 21 laps, 21 furlongs, 21 kilometres, 21 miles or 21 something else……… let your imagination run wild…… Or you can think about walking 21 of your chosen length virtually and ask friends and family to support you!
Individual and Branch Sponsorship Forms will be available through your branch and on the All-Ireland MU website and your sponsorship money can be collected from you when branches reopen in the autumn.
JUNE BUTLER, ALL-IRELAND PRESIDENT
Using the Sponsorship Forms, you can also support and sponsor June who, for ‘21 IN 21’, is planning 3 x 7 kilometre walks in each diocese beginning in March and to be completed by November 2021 – a total of 252 kilometres! Due to Covid -19 restrictions, the details of each walk have not been finalised, but June will begin these walks in Northern Ireland, initially with one other person as is permitted in March, and later she hopes that larger groups of members will be allowed to join each 7 kilometre walk across Ireland.
JUST GIVING PAGE:
A JUST GIVING PAGE has been set up for the “21 in 21” initiative, so friends and family can easily sponsor June’s walking extravaganza or any other member’s challenge. Simply log on to www.justgiving.com/fundraising/MumsinMay21 to donate to the All-Ireland Mums in May Fund (in either Sterling or Euros). Details are also on the All-Ireland website and Facebook pages.
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS:
