The Mayo Camogie County Board has had an excellent response to their #Move4MayoCamogie campaign so far this month, with players, coaches and members of the public embracing the challenge to move for 2,021 seconds (or 34 minutes) every day throughout the month.
The campaign is entering its final week and organisers are asking for one final push to help to reach the €2,500 fundraising target in support of Mayo camogie and the National Breast Cancer Research Institute. The funds being raised will go towards supporting club and county camogie players in Mayo and the vital work of an important charity, with 15 percent of all monies raised going directly to the NBCRI.
Already the campaign has seen camogie coaches taking to mountain trails, players taking part in the ‘Wheelie Bin Challenge’, families going on walks and cycles and much more. Participants can choose whatever physical activity they like – the important thing is to get active and get moving while adhering to the 5km travel restrictions. Participants do not have to be a member of a camogie club to get involved.
With four active camogie clubs in Mayo and county teams from under-14 up to adult level, camogie is a growing sport in Mayo and the county board is asking for public support to continue its development work.
