Students from Luttrelstown Community School in Dublin 15 who participated in our Run the Club Transition Year programme were tasked with arranging, launching and organising an Operation Transformation Park Run as one of their tasks on this innovative education course. The run will take place on March 30th and will help to raise money towards the new school sports hall.
FAI CEO John Delaney was on hand to lend his support to the launch event and incentive’s as many students as possible to take part in the Park Run by pledging a ticket to the forthcoming Ireland V Georgia Euro 2020 qualifier for every student who signs up to take part in the run.
Siobhan O’Brien who is a teacher in Luttrelstown was one of the RTE Operation Transformation Leaders and along with the Bohemian FC More than a Club team is encouraging students from her school to get involved in the Park Run. The launch event which was attended by 400 students was organised by the Transition Year students who took part in the Run the Club programme. The Run the Club programme is a 16 week education course and helps students to develop skills such as project and event management, marketing, financial management and to recognise the importance of sports clubs to local communities.
