Kildimo United FC U15 boys squad are competing in a relay race called Run 2 Wembley where they will cover 600km to raise funds for Jigsaw Ireland.

This fundraiser will take place in conjunction with the 2020 European Championship which commences in June 2021. They will cover the 600km distance between Kildimo, Co Limerick & Wembley Stadium, London, culminating with the final leg of their run on the 11th of July, which will coincide with the European Final on that day.

As we all know Mental Health is of huge issue in these testing times and the mental health of our young people is even more so. Jigsaw offer expert Mental Health advice and support, online & in person, to young people across Ireland, aged 12-25 years old.

Kildimo United hold extreme admiration for their squad of young men and their decision to organise an event like this for such a worthy cause and they would be so grateful if you could support them in their fundraising and their selfless act of kindness which is linked below.

Jigsaw Ireland provide free, expert information resources and support online, and in communities across Ireland.

Receiving the right information and support when it’s most needed can make a real difference to someone’s quality of life. It can improve their mental and physical wellbeing and give them what they need to manage their mental health.

Jigsaw Ireland use their experience and knowledge to create a more supportive environment for young people. By working together with their partners they want to secure changes to awareness levels, policies and funding to advance our vision for the mental health of Ireland’s young people.

They believe in a community-based, holistic approach and that they cannot achieve their vision without the active involvement of communities across Ireland. To make essential change happen, they want to inform, support, and educate everyone across Ireland about young people’s mental health.
