WLR Waterford Viking Marathon helps Make-A-Wish come true for charity
‘Make-A-Wish’ Ireland has been chosen as the nominated charity for 9th annual WLR Waterford Viking Marathon.
The 2020 event takes place on Saturday, June 20.
Organisers hope more than 3,000 runners will take part this year along a unique route that highlights many of the city’s key landmarks and attractions, including the ever popular Waterford Greenway.
Waterford Viking Marathon event manager Roisí Ferris said: “We are delighted to support Make-a-wish this year. The work they undertake in Waterford and indeed across the country is truly remarkable.
“Every day they receive applications from families in need of help, for wishes which allow children to escape routines of hospital visits and treatments, replacing them with carefree, life-changing experiences. Waterford Viking Marathon hopes to help them in some small way through the event this year.”
