Many thanks to everyone who took part in this year’s Liberties Fun Run. We were delighted to present a cheque for a staggering €50,000 to the GUIDe Clinic at St. James’s Hospital Dublin.
On Thursday, 21st of July 2016, St James’s Hospital Foundation held the 8th Annual Liberties Fun Run in aid of St James’s Hospital.
This unique 6k timed road race took participants through the heart of old Dublin.
Starting & finishing in the beautiful grounds of IMMA / Royal Hospital Kilmainham, the route took in some of the most famous sites throughout the Liberties including St James’s Gate, Francis Street and the Coombe.
All of the proceeds from the 2016 Liberties Fun Run went directly to the GUIDe Clinic here at St James’s Hospital to upgrade patient facilities.
