96. It’s a number that strongly resonates with a lot of Wexford people…
’96 was the year the Yellowbellies defeated Limerick in the All-Ireland hurling final. 96 is also the number of kilometers Wexford GAA are challenging you to complete in May 2021.
The Model Army 96km Charity Challenge starts on Saturday 1st of May and concludes on Sunday 30th May.
This is a joint fundraiser between Wexford GAA and their two pillar charities, Cottage Autism Network and County Wexford Hospice Homecare.
We are asking Wexford people across the county, Ireland and all over the world to walk, jog or run to cover 96km which equates to 3.1km per-day over the month of May.
They are also encouraging you to donate to a fundraiser to raise funds for the Wexford GAA Inclusion Programme, Cottage Autism Network and County Wexford Hospice Homecare.
As part of the Wexford GAA Inclusion Programme, a sensory garden will be developed at our Centre of Excellence in Ferns. The sensory garden will be the first of its kind in any sporting location in Ireland and will provide a safe environment for children to use before, during or after coaching clinics.
Wexford GAA have set a target to reach €20,000 for the worthwhile causes and project
