Fundraising event for Forkhill couple

February 15, 2016

A fundraising run/walk event to help defray wedding costs for Forkhill couple Tony Mulholland and Kim Cunningham will take place this Sunday 21st February in the village.

When Tony was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, his family embarked on a campaign to help him and his fiancée Kim fulfill their dream of getting married.

A Gofundme appeal has already raised more than £6,000 and Sunday’s event is planned to help boost the wedding fund.

The 10k run and 5k walk will get underway at 12 noon from Peadar Ó Doirnín GFC with an entry fee of £10 per person or £20 per family.

Dozens of generous businesses and individuals have also pledged to support the couple and have offered everything from wedding limousines, dresses, photography, music and every conceivable requirement for the special day which has been set for Friday 4th March.
