You Too Could Have the Padraic Cos Look. Ballinrobe GAA Club is using the month of November and the remaining Covid19 Level 5 lockdown period to raise funds for worthy charities by organising a “Movember Challenge“. Support our players, coaches and members as they take on the ‘Movember Challenge”. ”Movember” is a time to inspire men (and women) to look after their physical and mental health and wellbeing. Men are challenged to grow a moustache, and men and women can be physically active and move or host a fundraising event. The charities that have been chosen are the Corrib Mask Search and Rescue, and the Mayo Roscommon Hospice. Both charities are very worthy causes and contribute greatly to the community of Ballinrobe and its surrounds. At the end of the Level 5 lockdown period, an event will be organised whereby all those who took part will have the opportunity to have their masterpieces shaved off.
John Flannelly, Chairman of Ballinrobe GAA Club said “during COVID-19 it has been very difficult for charities and voluntary organisations to fundraise with all the restrictions of movement currently in place. This is an opportunity for Ballinrobe GAA Club to give back to just 2 of those groups that provide such a valuable service and support to the people of Ballinrobe and its environs”.
Each week, participants will send in photos of their progress in the challenge. With the age profile of our current Intermediate Team, it is suspected that some of them may struggle with this challenge, however we as a club have not, and never will, doubt their commitment to the cause – on or off the pitch. A collage of those photos will be posted on facebook so that everybody can keep track of their progress.
