Bon Secours Hospital Limerick at Barrington’s are delighted to announce the return of the “Run for Fun” Limerick’s largest children’s fun run, and its continued sponsorship of this fantastic event.

The Run for Fun will take place at the University of Limerick on Saturday 29th of April and will see hundreds of national school children take part.

Sarah O’Sullivan CEO Bon Secours Hospital Limerick stated “We are absolutely delighted to be associated with such a great event. As a healthcare provider we are keen to promote healthy activity amongst the people of the Mid-West. Introducing non-competitive fun activities such as the ‘Run for Fun’ at an early stage in children’s lives can have such a positive outcome to their wellbeing, confidence and their development.
