On Sunday 19th August, Blades 'n' Shades, a new 5K fun skating event takes place in Fr Collins Park, Donaghmede, at 10am in aid of Breast Cancer Services at Beaumont Hospital. Take part on roller blades or roller skates and complete two laps of the park to cross the finish line! All entrants required to wear helmets and knee and elbow protection.
The event begins with a special demonstration of skating skills by members of the Dublin Roller Derby and who will then act as marshalls on the course! If you fall over, they'll help you get right back up again! Bring the whole family and enter your younger children in the free Whacky Races event - a fun race on wheels (skates, blades, skateboards, bikes, scooters, etc) for children under eight years.
Costs €25 to register at http://www.beaumontfundraising.ie/shop?c=4041
or by phone on 01 809 2457 - places are limited so get your blades or skates on for a unique and fun day in the park and help raise funds for breast cancer services.
