Day 177 The Run for Ronan (Photo A Day 2012)

It’s a bit of a cliche but the older you get  the quicker time seems to pass. I can’t believe it’s twenty years since the very untimely death of Ronan Molloy. I was on placement in Chicago from Magee college when I got the unbelievable news. Ronan was an enthusiastic member of Coalisland Health club based in the parochial centre and had gone out for a run on a summers evening 27th of july 1992. This year his family have organised a 5 and 10K run in his memory.  The event will take place on Saturday 28th July 2012 in Coalisland starting at the Parochial Centre on the Stewartstown Road.  Registration will take place from 10am. The event is to celebrate his life and in his memory but also to raise funds for a worthy cause and highlight the risk of cardiac problems in young active people. All monies raised will go to Cardiac Risk in the Young. CLICK HERE  for the Run For Ronan Facebook page.
