Memorial Run to honour the memory of Dara Fitzpatrick to be held on Waterford Airport Runway

Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run Saturday 15th September 2018


Commenting on last year’s event Ray Leahy said  “The success of last year's event is due to the commitment, dedication and kindness of our volunteers, sponsors and supporters who turned up to help us with the run. We saw such amazing support in action, it was really a wonderful thing to be part of and a beautiful tribute to a marvellous, brave lady.”

With the theme ‘Remember and Make a Difference’, the run remembers Dara Fitzpatrick and the work she did with Rescue 117 as she flew over the skies of the South East, and also makes a difference by raising funds for our two chosen charities, RNLI Lifeboats and Dogs For The Disabled.

Participants can register and find more information at The number of participants will be limited and those interested are advised to register early to avoid disappointment as this event sold out early last year.

Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run

5K Run

I have run a lot of races and never experienced anything quite like today.. it was so moving and incredible to see such solidarity and respect from all the members of the rescue and emergency services... the venue, the organisation, the guard of honour from a team of hero's, a top class medal, fantastic atmosphere, a very detailed and easy to understand email with all FAQ... hard to believe this was a first time run as it was so well organised... organisers be proud of yourselves this was a hugely successful event, it would be great if you made this an annual event... thank you
