Munster players recently took time out of their Heineken Cup training to support ADAPT and ask you to “Run for Rights” in the Great Limerick Run to raise funds for ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services who help the 1 in 5 women in Ireland who experience domestic abuse. Despite its prevalence, domestic abuse against women remains a widely hidden crime in our society. Domestic abuse is a crime and a violation of human rights. This is not a women’s issue, it is a societal issue and one that all of us have a role in tackling. International research suggests that domestic abuse calls to the police rise significantly during major sporting occasions such as the Rugby World Cup. Men have a key role to play in bringing this issue out into the open and promoting zero tolerance of domestic abuse. To continue these vital services and help women on their road to safe and peaceful lives ADAPT need your help. This year they hope to have their biggest support yet in the Great Limerick Run and need you to run for the rights of women and children to live a life free of abuse and fear. Running for ADAPT in the Great Limerick Run means running for women, running for children and running for their rights. If you would like to support them call Laura Bohan on 061 412354 to register. Whether you feel you can raise 20 euro or 100 euro they would be delighted to have you on our team. There will also be space for the first 20 that register with us to park your car and somewhere to change on the day. For more information on their services go to www.adaptservices.ie.
